    I knew it. Got woken up in Toronto with my bed shaking around 9:40am (and there was no girl with me lol). I was in a bit of a daze, but first thing that came to mind was an earthquake.

    from the AP:

    "TORONTO — A 5.2 magnitude earthquake centered northwest of Ottawa rattled buildings Friday in Ontario and Quebec and was felt across upstate New York from Buffalo to the Vermont border.

    Canada's government agency that monitors earthquakes said the quake it registered a 5.2-magnitude temblor with an epicenter located about 11 miles (17 kilometers) northeast of Shawville, Quebec, about an hour's drive outside Canada's capital.

    It was felt as far west as Toronto, Canada's largest city, but no damage was immediately reported.

    Twitter erupted with reports of buildings shaking in Ottawa for several seconds. Ontario's premier, who lives in Toronto, tweeted that her house was shaking.

    Ontario Provincial Police in Arnprior, Ontario, not far from the epicenter, say they have received no reports of damage. Local media outlets in northern New York say people in communities along the St. Lawrence River and as far east as Lake Champlain on New York-Vermont border reported feeling their homes shake.

    There are also reports from residents of Buffalo and surrounding suburbs who say they felt their houses sway and the ground shake for less than one minute. Rochester and Syracuse media outlets also report that the quake was felt in those areas.

    The original report said a 4.8-magnitude quake was centered near the town of Braeside, Ontario."

    J'étais justement sur le trône entrain de couler un bronze... J'ai bien "senti" quelque chose ... Mais je n'ai pas réaliser que l'effet de la chute n'était pas juste local

    I was 100% awake and I absolutely felt nothing. It was really uneventful here in Montreal.
