eruthros: Delenn from Babylon 5 with a startled expression and the text "omg!" (Default)
I was just sitting here when I suddenly felt something that felt an awful lot like an earthquake. It wasn't a truck going by, it was an actual earthquake.

So, knowing how poorly made my house is, I went and stood in a doorframe for a while, looking quizically at the bookshelves that were rolling a little. Because it was long for an earthquake.

And it took a while for it to show up on the USGS page -- I guess that's what happens when you have an earthquake in New York -- but yes, it was indeed a 5.5 earthquake 60 km from Ontario.

So! My very first earthquake outside of California or Nevada! It's extremely weird to be standing in a doorframe in New York wondering if anything is going to fall off a shelf. (By the time it got here, it was a pretty mild rolling on the scale of earthquakes-I've-stood-in-a-doorframe-for, but I understand it had more side-to-sideness up in Ontario.)
