Earthquake

I think we just had a small earthquake around Ottawa again.

House gave a single jolt Almost similar to when the last quake hit and I thought the roof was going to fall on my head.

Yes it woke me up as a rattling in the house but I didn't feel anything.

The quake we had in June 2010 nearly knocked me out of my chair outside and I could see the wave travel through the backyard and garage. I had an expensive UPS sitting on an oak floor and after the quake I couldn't get it to work again. I think a circuit board cracked.

Heard it on the radio that a small one hit Montreal... but I was too busy sleeping to notice anything.

God is angry at Montreal for forcing his poor suffering Jesus out from the mayoralty.

That was just the earth rebounding after Harper's armoured limo was shipped off to India.

I was in Ottawa for the 2010 one. Scary as sheite being in an old brick and mortar building at the time. Everyone downtown around us had exited their huge office towers.

Yup, Harper is to blame for everything. This place reminds me of the CBC News website where, according to the comments, everything is Harper's fault.

As far as the car thing goes, India can be a dangerous place - I don't understand any of the so-called "controversy" about this.

Anyway, to get back on topic, I was jarred awake around 4:05 because I thought I heard something, and then went back to sleep. My house is built on Leda clay, which amplifies the movement and causes some pretty major shaking!

I can't say I felt it, but I was awoken, looked at the clock and said to myself "Why on earth are you suddenly, and very, awake just after 4am?". Now I know why.
