A snow storm and an earthquake

We have gotten about 15 inches of snow in the last couple of days.  I know nothing like you all out east have gotten this year.  At least I didn't have to drive in it.  I have been home sick since last Friday. There has been a stomach bug going around work and yes now I got it.  I have been so sick. Haven't been able to keep anything down.  Hubs took me to the doctor yesterday and she put me on a baby monitor to check the baby and thank heavens the baby's heartbeat is great but she said I was having small contractions which she said is due to dehydration.  She gave me some antinausea medication and said if I wasn't feeling better in 36 hours she would have to send me to the hospital to get IV fluids.  I am home from work again today and luckily am feeling a bit better now that I have been taking the medication.  At least I can keep some fluids and food down.  It's been a crazy week.  I just hate being sick don't you all.
Well on to my earthquake news.  This morning I got up about 3:30 am to get some juice.  Well I couldn't go back to sleep so I layed on the couch and was watching some TV. Just before 4:00 am I felt the couch fibrating.  It was crazy.  It felt like a big truck drove by but I didn't hear any cars at all.  I didn't think much of it but when the local news came on at 5:30 am they were announcing that there was a 4.3 earthquake in northwest Illinois just before 4:00 am.  I knew that is what I had felt.  It was crazy.  My first earthquake.  Now it wasn't super strong so if I had been sleeping I wouldn't have even noticed but it was funny.  Not a common thing here in Illinois that is for sure.

Hope you all are having a great Wednesday.  Is everyone home due to the snow?
