We Interupt This Contest to Bring You Earthquake Coverage

No, you didn't click the wrong link. And no we're not on a California vacation. We're still right here smack dab in the Midwest. Not too far from the epicenter. Granted, living in a rickety old farmhouse may have intensified the effect, but when it shook me out of bed this morning it FREAKED me out. We just had another sizable aftershock, it seems chickens don't care much for earth moving under their feet either. How in the world do you folks out there on the West Coast stand this? The last earthquake here was in 1987 and I sure hope it's another 20 years until the next one.

Due to all the earthquake hubub, and more to the fact that I have errands to run, we'll be extending the Give-This-Chicken-a-Name contest through Saturday. Great entries so far, keep 'em coming!

I'm glad to say there was an aftershock, We're quite a ways from you and it woke us up this morning, and I have already blogged about it. At 10:16 I was on third floor of our administration building and felt a shiver, and saw my coffee moving, so I noted the time. I must just be sensitive to these things!

I couldn't believe the earthquake this morning either! I'm sure our chickens thought the sky was falling! (hee hee)

I couldn't figure out what was the matter with the girls this morning (cats)... of course, I slept through it and had no clue!

I was at work when it happened and we didn't feel a thing. Sort of disappointing. And yet, I'm glad nothing in my china cabinet was broken.

Nooooooo! You have earthquakes in Indiana also? I thought when I moved from California I was getting away from them!
