Chip woke me up at six something this morning to tell me that there had been a large earthquake in Mt. Carmel, Il. in the middle of the night. My dad's sister and her family, all my cousins and their families live in Mt. Carmel and the surrounding area. Reports are that there are no casualties so I'm not immediately worried, but am waiting to hear word from them. I'm told some in the KC area felt the rumble. I did not, but a couple of my dogs are acting a bit strange this morning. They're acting very needy and they have the scared eyes.
