My sister said the 3.8 quake woke them at around 4am this morning. They thought the snow plow was just going down the street.

Not many places are made to withstand earthquakes.

I slept through it, but Bob said the dogs woke him up right at the same time it was suppose to have happened so we think they might have felt it.
