I was just sitting here about a half hour ago surfing the web, when suddenly I felt the house and floor started shaking. I asked Mrs. Sunsett if she felt it. Sure enough, she did. She wanted to know what it was. Being from California and having been in some real jarring jolts before, it wasn't hard to figure out.
They are now saying it was a 5.4 quake and centered near West Salem, Illinois. No damage noticed here in Indianapolis yet, just a sharp increase of adrenaline.
They are now saying the quake was 5.2 and there has been a 4.5 aftershock, which I missed because I was driving at the time. (It's amazing how well-protected from the environment a person is, when they are driving a full-sized gas-guzzling pick-up truck.)
