Right when I started that GAB post, I thought my room started to shake. I thought something must’ve exploded in the garage below or a plane was flying really low overhead (there’s a small airport near here) or something, because it kinda felt like what an earthquake would feel like, but obviously there couldn’t be an earthquake in the Chicago area. I did quickly scan ChiTrib and the gov’s earthquake site and saw nothing, so I figured I just lost my mind for a second there.
Turns out, no. 41 miles away. How completely bizarre. I hope this doesn’t mean the earth is splitting open to swallow us whole, because I’d find that unfortunate.
