Did You Feel That?

There was a 5.2 earthquake early this morning with the epicenter near Allendale, Illinois with a 4.6 aftershock at about 11:00 AM. Allendale is where my great grandparents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins lived out their lives, where my mother and brother was born, and where my dad and stepmother lived until they died. This is the same little tiny town of about 500 souls that was practically wiped off the map in January 1989 by an F4 tornado. I'm thinking this poor little town is jinxed! Jinxed because of the earthquake and tornado not because all of my ancestors were born there!! :-)
