12:24 Saturday afternoon, I was sitting in a chair when I felt my chair start moving.  My first thought was , "what the heck?".  I looked over at my husband and he had a puzzled look on his face.   I said to him "was that an Earthquake?".     Apparently it was.

I admit it was only a minor shaking, however that was the first time I had ever experienced something like that.   According to reports it was a 4.2 on the Richter Scale.

Luckily only minor damage in the Galesburg area, which is where the Earthquake was centred.   A building there had some cracks in their foundation.

This is not the first quake for Michigan, but it is the strongest to hit since the 1940's when Michigan experienced a 4.7 quake.
