I was at a meeting near Syracuse new york ysesterday for a late lunch meeting at at 1:40 the chairs in the the conference room felt like they wer moving... kinda swirling for about 5 to 15 seconds. First time ever felt that building was moving... people in the office said it was a large truck.. today i saw the news that it was a quake:confused:

Hope all is well in the Ottawa area

I was in Jaco Costa Rica last month and they had a 5.6 and it was nutts. It feels like your equilibrium is really messed up and you can't walk.

Just move to Cali and you'll get all you can handle! Check this (http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Maps/region/N_America.php) out and you'll see what i mean, and this is actually a very mild week!
