EARTHQUAKE IN ST. LOUIS
We had a bit of a wild night last night, St. Louis had experienced an earthquake. The news said it was 5.2 on the ritchter (sp?) scale and that the epicenter was in IL . I was actually awake because this pregnant girl had to use the restroom. When I got back in bed Greg was awake too. Living in a small space we make really good use of our closets... They are packed. Many times things have shifted and fallen off the shelves during the night and freaked us out. That is what I thought was happening. At first you could just hear things jiggling in the closet and on the dressers and then you could feel the whole bed and house shaking... That was a bit scary. It woke Louis up, he thought the upstairs neighbors were playing dance dance revolution. All of the rest of the kids slept right through it. We thank God that it wasn't any bigger and for His protection. I'm gonna hopefully get a chance to blog later today about our trip and call day coming up.
