Was that an earthquake or......

Or did Rossi Smash faint when he saw an adirondak chair made of vintage skis?

 

Seriously, any Bears feel the earthquake today on the East Coast?

I didn't but have friends who did.

Checked my cell phone as it was exactly 1:41 when the hiuse I was working on started shaking here at Chautauqua Lake. No damage or anything. Was weird though. Kept waiting for the tsunami, never happened.

Didn't notice a thing!  Others in the Boston area said that furniture was moving, but I think that they are crazed and psychotic.

How did the animals do, Dr Dolittle?

I am about 50km away from the epicenter in Ottawa. It was weird. It started out like a large truck rumbling by - which it could have been because of the major construction close by, but it went on a grew in intensity. The peak only lasted a few seconds. Gave everything a bit of a shake but didn't displace anything. My brother works on the 9th floor across town about 20km closer and said it was enough that he had to put one hand on the wall as he was walking. Neat experience, glad it wasn't any bigger. There was some road/bridge damage close to the epicenter, but not much here in town.

A 5.0? That's hardly worth noticing.

I've been through a few 5.0's out in Cali, nothing big. I hardly noticed it here in NH
