Ok, so it was probably like a 1.0 or less. But I swear we just had an earthquake here in Ottawa like half an hour ago! What's crazy is that me and my roommates are not only expecting more, we actually WANT more.

Any other W's from Eastern Ontario (or the US equalilvent) feel something?

My apologies for not finding the *Canadian* Geological Survey's website and giving you THAT link. ;-)

It would certainly have been more than that - I was told by a geologist once that if an earthquake or tremor measures 3.5 or below, you probably won't feel it.

It was a 4.5.

...which works out to a 5.2 after you apply the exchange rate. BA-DUM-BUM

Yeah, I was at a friend's birthday/poker game last night, and was out back getting beer out of the car.

When I came back in, the room was yakking about an apparent earthquake that I'd somehow failed to feel.

I'm guessing the snow and ice was plenty to keep me off balance.

It's all new to me. I'm from the redneck belt, we don't get no earthquakes, just a bunch of snow.

Now a running gag is us pounding on the floor of our house (all six of us) yelling "EARTHQUAKE!!!".


Well, WE find it amusing. The neighbors probably don't though.
