It woke me up when my bed started vibrating violently and everything on my desk was shaking. I actually thought I had imagined it because I was so hazy and half asleep. I laid there awake for awhile wondering if it had been an earthquake (not unheard of in the area) or if I dreamed it. Then I kind of shrugged and went back to sleep. I didn't even think about it until I was looking at school closings and saw the headlines and told the kids I felt the quake. Very strange morning, indeed.
Oh, the epicenter was about 50 miles from my house. I still can't believe it woke me up. I slept through the last quake we had around here (a couple years ago).
