    Anyone else feel that in Ontario? o.o

    We just had a small earth-quake... no damage... kinda cool
    Rock on, go big or go home, hit the ground running, hang in there kitty... don't eat the yellow snow...

    Yes. It was centred near here (Ottawa). Early reports have it as a 5.5 or 5.6 earthquake. We all evacuated the building for a while. The only damage I can see is a wet spot on a ceiling tile - I will report it to building maintenance in case a fitting got knocked loose.

    Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.

    Felt it just outside Buffalo for 30 sec but it was pretty well small by then, oh well guess it's time to dive the fault line tonight . I hope this storm holds off so we can finish our weekly drift.

    Apparently some people here (Auburn Hills, MI) felt it as well... I didn't notice it, but I was walking around with patients at the time it happened.

    Yea, I felt it but lets not talk
    about it or those Californians will laugh at us!
    People who look good with a mask on are usually ugly without one.
