We had an EARTHQUAKE in Illinois this morning (about 1:11 am). I think it is pretty well known that this is not all that common here. 4.5 - not bad
for the midwest! And I slept right through it - missed all the action.
Oh man, I felt it here in Iowa. It was so weird. I'm sitting at my computer and all the sudden my desk starts shaking! I was like, "what the
heck?!" I immediately thought it must be a quake, but didn't know why I was feeling one in Iowa. Then I thought it could have been some impact
from a meteor somewhere in the region as well. But, it was definitely the quake in Illinois.
Back to weather though, these past couple weeks, here in Iowa, we've had record lows for this time of year. I could see my breath outside in late
June!! Usually we're in the 80's by now. Also strangely dry and windy, when it's usually humid and not so windy.
Okay, I really hope I get some responses from people in regions we haven't heard from yet.
