(This is my 200th post!! Yay, me!)
Wow! We felt the earthquake that was centered in Illinois. Our house shook similar to what I remember growing up next to the railroad tracks when the trains go by. It also reminds me of a couple times when I was living in Washington state. One of the times I was in NCW (North Central Washington) visiting someone in Cashmere and we thought a train was going by then but later found out it was an earthquake and a Mariners game was being played at the Kingdome at the time (Ken Griffey Jr. was still there) anyway they felt it at the Kingdome. Then in 1998-1999 when I was living in Seattle I was home by myself when the whole house shook and I thought it was our furnace about to blow because we were low on oil. I went out to check the oil level. My roommates never let me live that one down. They would be like "did you feel that, better check the oil".
