Wrong border. In other words, epicenter wasn't on the border between Canada and the USA, but between Ontario and Quebec. Its epicenter was well within the Canadian side. It damaged some buildings in western Quebec and a section of a highway collapsed into a river as a result of the quake. Funny thing was, my mother who lives in Montreal, didn't even know there had been an earthquake until I told her last night. :thumbsup:

Aw, let's never start up Global Warming with this?

That would be so silly. Life is just Crazy, just now? I think we should just look around and realise that?

All Humans know we are into a change, from the World Cup in Football. (It has shown, we all need to re-adjust towards each other.)

That is wonderful to see.

No Offense ever was intendered.

Yes I felt it where I live too. It was pretty cool when you don't think about what that really means. I kept wondering if Niagara Falls was ok. It had to have been felt there. What I find amazing is that this was felt in such a wide spread area. I am just glad it was not worse for our neighbors in The Great White North hehe

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
