11:15PM

Once again, I awoke with a start because my bed was shaking, but I do not see anything specific in the news so far today.

It was either 11:14 or 11:15 when my bed started moving back and forth and, yet again, I tried to make sure it wasn't just some kind of leg spasm or the like. Both times this has happened before, I had the same idea, but the other times were so aggressive, there was simply no way it could have been anything but a quake. However, the one I felt last night was far more subtle and could very well have been some kind of leg spasm or the like.

I hesitate to say that because I have had leg spasms or similar plenty enough to realize I am having one - it's just a part of life - and I have never awakened with a start the way I have the last few nights when the actual earth shook.

Still, last night's episode was more of a trembling, but it went on for up to a full minute and I got up and recorded it in my day planner (which was over here, on the desk) and did not feel my leg spasming when I did. Though, I admit I didn't feel the trembling when I got up, either - of course, I'd been so shocked at first, I waited a bit before leaping out of bed.

The only new thing I found today about quakes was all the way in Nevada, but that doesn't mean I didn't feel something. I talked about feeling tremors while living in Memphis almost my entire life - certainly several times in the last 10 years or so - but nothing ever appeared in the news, and most people just said they hadn't felt anything or rolled their eyes at me.

I'll be honest, I don't think we've seen the worst yet.
