Apparently all of west Michigan felt it. I thought something crashed in my back yard. The whole house shook.

LoL I spent 7 years in CA, so I can't even feel small earthquakes anymore. I just thought it was my computer vibrating since I have my feet up on my tower.

I know what caused this Earthquake!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Earthquake hit at 12:24PM. Now follow the chain here:

The EQ was felt from Chicago to Detroit. The epicenter was pretty close to exact center of Michigan along the I-94 Corridor. I-94 runs from Detroit through Chicago where the NFL Draft was taking place.

At 12:41PM rao posted the folling in the draft day 3 thread:

Trade into the 4th by Lions

Now Assuming that there was a 17 minute lag time between when the trade was consummated and the time rao found out about it and posted about it, the trade was consummated at the exact same time the quake struck.

This means that the ground in the very center of the state of Michigan, along the main rout linking Detroit and Chicago, shook violently in anger at the Lions giving up next years 3rd round pick for a 4th round pick this year.

This is not a good omen!!!!!!

LOL.

It was about 4 miles from my parents house in Galesburg. Pretty crazy since there's no fault line anywhere near there.

Huh? That's not true at all. Some rivers flow over fault lines, but it's not accurate at all to say every river is on a fault line. Not even close.
