Earthquake !!!!

The earth shook, the windows rattled, the dweeb got all nervous and worried, Dad noticed Mom and me didn't.

Yes - we had us an earthquake yesterday at 4.30pm. It was only a 3.6 magnitude and was centered about 20 miles south east of us but we still felt it.  We actually live quite close to the New Madrid Fault Line so tremors in this area are not uncommon but this is the first time we have ever felt one. There was no reports of damage of injuries - Mom says Mother Nature was probably having a good stretch after snoozing through winter. 


  1. Thank goodness it was exciting and not damaging. Love your mum's description of it. She's very cool considering she's probably never encountered one in Oz! :)

  2. I bet that can be scary. MOM and I live on the Wasatch Fault. Glad it only shook you up a little bit and all are safe.

  3. Glad you all are safe and unharmed. Kind of exciting! Have a super Sunday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Earthquake sounded scary. We had one over a year ago, but mommy remembers it like it was yesterday.

  5. Exciting! I've felt them a couple dad would tell me I was crazy and blame it on the washing machine, and then the next day it would be in the newspaper!

  6. Glad there was no damage...

    We know all about the New Madrid Fault... When the BIG quake hit the Mississippi river flowed backwards...
    That is the quake that the Shawnee Chief Tecumseh was supposed to have PREDICTED... 5 years in advance.
    Did it rattle the dishes this time?

  7. Woof! Woof! That's scary. Thankful that you guys are alright. How's the train table? Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  8. We've had earth quakes here a few times too. They had to rebuild the dam because they said if the dam broke from an earth quake , the city would flood. Im glad it was a minor one for you.

  9. Yep, we been through a few here in the last year, DON'T LIKEM, we are with Dweed.

  14. Oh, I'm glads it wasn't too big guys, and I sure am glads your okay!!
    We know the earth shakers well here in California! It can be only a 3.6, butts feel alot bigger. It all has to do with 'plates' and depth, etc.
    Ma has a sayin' ~ 'I don't get up for anything smaller than a 4.0'
    I'm not sure I believe her!! BOL

  15. We live up on the coast about 3 hours drive north of Seattle and we're on a fault line too. We get a little nervous sometimes but so far only relatively minor ones...

  16. We'd agree with the stretching theory except we had one to the west of us last week....which we didn't feel. It wasn't a big one. So maybe she was stretching her upper body near you and just her toes came near us.

  20. How scary! So glad that you guys are okay, Reilly.

    We live next to the Equator so we are quite lucky that no stormy rain and super strong wind to come to us and our earth doesn't shake.

  21. New Madrid Earthquake. Dad remembers reading about that one in Geology Class. It was impressive. Many Dog Moons before he got us, Dad used to live in Blyville, Arkansas.
