OK, so it wasn’t this dramatic, but an earthquake did hit Illinois early this morning around 4:30am with a magnitude of 5.4. Over 300 miles away from Chicago, the effects were still reportedly said to have shaken Chicago’s downtown buildings. There are no reports or injury of damage. Funny, I didn’t feel it all and only learned about it after reading this article on the Commercial Appeal online.

Edit: Apryl (who had fallen asleep on the couch) and Eva both experienced the quake this morning. I’ll let them share their own stories if they feel like it.

Hey! Look at me!

My love for Chicago style hot dogs has got me mentioned in the Weekly Yelp in a feature they’re calling “Yelp Diggety Dog!” (I’m Hayden J.) Funny.

Go, Tigers!

Who could believe that two such big events could happen on the same day? My little sister got married, and the Tigers finally won a Final Four game? The weekend was great but super fast and action packed. In fact, Hayden was so worn out that he didn’t touch the computer when we got home at midnight last night or when he got up at 6:00 this morning for a shoot. So I thought that I would post for him to show our support for our alma mater and this amazing Tigers team.

Speaking of cats, Eva seemed to do okay while being boarded at the vet’s for only the second time in her life. She did need a little extra reassurance that we were around last night. She wanted extra petting and someone to be within easy reach at all times. She also hid from Hayden this morning as she does when he gets up early now because she thinks that he might be taking her to the vet. Fortunately, we’re all done with radiation treatments! Eva’s follow-up visit will be in a few weeks. Thanks to everyone for asking about her regularly.

And to put some more focus back on the bigger cats for today, here’s a link to the U of M March Madness page where you can download an mp3 of the fight song in case you haven’t gotten enough of it lately. I also borrowed the photo at the top from that page.
