Apparently there was an earthquake this morning that shook many Michiganians awake at 5:30 am. I managed to sleep through it but found that my birds did not. There were feathers all over the place and evidence that they were quite upset early this morning. They're all fine now. I fell asleep sometime after 3:30 am. I was kept awake by howling dogs and lots of creatures stirring. It was quite unusual for this quiet country setting. I wonder if they knew something was amiss?
