WTF Was That?!

Sitting here at about 13:44, minding my own business, when suddenly I get this wave of sorta-dizziness. My desk started shaking back and forth, and I felt like I was shaking back and forth.

It was sort of  a single strong sensation, then a pause, then a series of smaller shaking sensations, that quickly died out. I’d say it was 10 seconds at most, from start to finish.

At first I thought I was losing it, but then I saw that Misha had felt it too, she was looking around all alarmed, but as it died out she quickly settled down and went back to sleep.

Turns out, it was a small earthquake. Reports are it was felt across central Canada, from Ottawa to Toronto, even into Ohio.

So yeah, I survived the big 2010 Ontario Earthquake.
