I did indeed. When I talked to her, Gloria mentioned that it was the
biggest one since 1968. I definitely remember that one: we thought
someone was backing a garbage truck into the framehouse where I was
living in Champaign.
This one woke me up. My first thought was to wonder how the guard dog
got under the bed to make it shake so. Then, of course, I realized it
was a quake. There seemed to be three shocks during the first quake.
I missed the one later this morning, but I understand that people were
grabbing their umbrellas and purses, just in case.
