Observing a box has never been this much fun
Earth shaken

For those of you who sleep in the mornings...you miss the fun!

I'm sitting here right around 5:30 and my parrot, NoNaMe, starts to squawk and flail about. I get up to calm him down, and he's behaving nervous. I go back into the living room and notice that several of the chimes we have inside are very quietly ringing. I stare at two for a bit trying to figure out what's making them do that.

It would appear that it was an earthquake! Watching the news the reports have just started to come in. There was a respectable 5.4 magnitude earthquake near Mount Carmel, Illinois around 5:36 EST this morning.

I think the last time Michigan felt a significant shake to the strata was back around 1994.

How eerie!

I'm always asleep for this stuff!

It actually woke me up. My deaf-induced ultra-sensitivity to tactile sensations probably helped here, though -- it doesn't sound like you felt any shaking.
