5.4 Magnitude Earthquake Rocks Illinois

DAMN ........ what a way to wake up!! Everything was shaking and swaying for almost a whole minute.

I actually thought my roof was gonna cave in ... scary stuff! Lot of things in the bathroom and kitchen fell over but other than that everything is fine. A good example of how the earth was rumbling and swaying is Albie's water bowl. The water was not in the bowl, it was all over the floor, however, the bowl was not turned over.

Hopefully, the rest of the day will be better with no more QUAKES!

His expression is telling me he forgot to pay his taxes!

I had to laugh when I saw this image. Can't believe I got him with his eye closed. These are my least favorite birds .. it's time for them to leave
