Earthquake Hits Kentucky

What a way to wake up. At 5:35 a.m. my dog began barking; I told him it was thunder and to relax. Immediately thereafter my ten year old started screaming "Mom! Somebody help me!" After I checked on him, his fifteen year old brother told me that his bed had been shaking.

I did not feel the quake although I thought I heard something. When I saw that the sky was clear, I thought that perhaps it had been a train crash. WHAS 11 and Drudge are now reporting that it was a 5.4 magnitude earthquake. I know that Kentucky is on a fault line, but I really never expected to experience even a tremor.

I'm not bitter, I don't carry a gun and I don't hate immigrants. But I'm clinging to my faith (which is much more powerful than mere "religion"). At 5:35 I was reminded that it's blessing to start this day safe and healthy.

I live in Southeastern Ky, and my oldest child said she woke up around 5 something and her room was shaking, but of course i was dead to the world, it would take a much bigger one than that to wake me up, hehe./
