Woke us up. My wife made me get out of bed and go look for a news report. Nothing on TV or yet.

Funny, as a long shot I thought I'd check 'mud.

'mud, "your first source for news"

Shook our house enough to wake me up too. And we're 150 miles North of Indianapolis.:eek:
I didn't wake up during it but I did right when it ended. Mainly cus my dog was a little startled. I couldn't go back to sleep so I jumped on the internet and waited for thr 5:00am news to start.
We had an earthquake? Actually, I slept right through it, until the flow flow alarm went off at a commercial building in town because of the water pressure fluxuation in the pipes. According the city water pressure data logger, there was a 15# spike during the event.

If you would like the info quicker than the news, go here.

Awesome email alert system WFD - I just found it earlier today after it was mentioned on local news.

Like MoJ, I couldn't find anything on local, national, CNN or anything. I even checked the emergency alert weather radio (though I didn't actually expect a report).

Turns out, Mud is your first source for news :).

Sadly, I was up since 3am due to the dang rotator cuff shoulder pain. I'm bummed, I was doing so well (no pain meds since day 5 post-op) and now at nearly 4 weeks out, a sudden return of sharp and continual pain.

I guess on the bright side, I was awake and alert for my first quake! :clap::bang:
