It woke me up around 4:40. It felt like one of those strong thunderstorms with wind that we’ve had roll through the last couple months. But after a few seconds it dawned on me: Earthquake!
It lasted long enough for my wife and I both to sit up and try to process it. She asked me at least three times “what is that?” It lasted long enough for me to get up and look out the window.
Turning on the tv my station, was the only one in Nashville talking about it. Even now, 30 minutes later, one station is a story on their “teacher of the week” or something like that.
Here’s what I know right now. 167 miles away near Evansville, Indiana there was a 5.4 earthquake.
