How strange is this- this morning on the Steve Shannon Show we were discussing the fact, or theory rather, that the world is going to come to an end on Saturday, and as we're taking calls to discuss what we'd put on our Rockford bucket list, this story pops up in my Facebook news feed:

According to WGN, there was a 3.8 magnitude earthquake that was recorded near Albion, Illinois this morning.

There aren't a lot of other details regarding the quake, all we know is that it hit around 6:45 am, but this all just seems weird. Earthquakes, hurricanes and hot temperatures in the middle of September?

What could be causing all of this?
