Was at work when othere one hit and it shook the concret floor and all the stuff on the wall. Now that was fun:tounge_out:

    Was here on the computer when the first one hit.... 4:37 a.m. ...... it was unnerving to say the least... never felt the second one.. I was over in Cape Girardeau.

    Years ago when we had the one that was comparable to this one, I was rabbit hunting. Was one of the most scary things I have ever witnessed. Guys the ground actually looked like waves on water. I know that sounds unbelieveable but the ground just seemed to roll like those waves do. What amazed me was it did not crack open. Anyone else ever seen anything like that?
