Earthquakes of unprecedented magnitude? No.

Headlines about disasters in places where day has already turned into night? No, no and no.

Any reports that Judgment Day arrived? No.

So, it looks like The Rapture that evangelical radio broadcaster Harold Camping said would begin at 2 a.m. ET today and that lots of folks are talking about hasn't happened.

Of course, we did sleep in a bit. Maybe we just missed it.

Camping's website hasn't updated the news, by the way.

Update at 7:30 a.m., May 22: Still no word from Camping about what didn't happen.
