I’m a little late in posting… but Friday morning I was time-warped back to my childhood in California! Why?
Illinois had an earthquake!
4:37am – my eyes open wide and my brain screams at me – “Get up, get the kids downstairs!!!”
“Why?” I ask myself.
“Earthquake!” my brain answers.
“Hogwash!” I think. “This is Illinois… earthquakes don’t happen here. Go back to sleep”
That’s when I noticed the dresser shaking…. and all my old childhood memories of the dozen earthquakes I experienced in California flooded back into my head. It was cool really, especially since this one was tiny, only a 5.2 and centered in Salem Illinois, quite south of me.
But for just a few seconds I was ten years old again and back in California… what a feeling!
