Wow !!! Sounds like both you AND bloodtrocuted experienced this. He tells about it in the weather thread.

That would have freaked me out !! Glad that y'all are okay. :)

The good news is that most items of infrastructure (freeways, buildings, etc.) are designed to handle a "Normal" earthquake.

In 1996, my wife and I slept through a 4.0 with the epicenter about 15 miles away from where we were living. Our cats were extremely upset though!!! :shock:

Dang, y'all slept through an earthquake !! :lol: Y'all must have been really tired. :lol:

Reminds me of the when hubby almost slept through the remnants of hurricane Hugo. My son was ten days old and my daughter 2 years. I stayed awake all night on the couch with both of them beside me. I was glued to the TV. It hit around 3am. I had to go back and wake hubby up !!! :rant: :bang: :lol:

I've slept through many earthquakes, not that hard really. Oh, and 4.0's are nothing.

I've never experienced an earthquake. Sounds a little scary to me. :worry:

I imagine that you are probably used to them, 02escape. Glad that it was not severe !! :)
