There appears to have been an earthquake in the midwest last night. I woke up at 6:47 from the entire house shaking. It felt like it was going to come down. Felt like when you're in a tree house that is breaking down. Then it was over. I considered for a second if I just had one of those religious experiences, but then I concluded it must have been an earthquake, and indeed that's what I heard today on the radio. This is definitely going into "the ritual."
