    Did anyone feel the earthquake? I work 20 minutes south of Cleveland and we felt it here!

    It started in Ontario, Canada and was measured 5.5.

    I hope everybody is okay!

    I didn't feel anything, but then again Ontario is a bit of a distance, though it now seems almost next door after I moved here.

    I didn't notice it, but some people an hour and a half or so away from me said that they felt it. My parents are cottaging with my grandmother in Ontario right now... wonder if they'll have exciting stories to share?

    Some people at school felt it, but I didn't. It happened just as the periods were changing and I was in the hall with about 75 grade 7 and 8 students--it would have had to be pretty serious for it to be felt through that! My son is about an hour west of me--he felt nothing. My mom is in Ottawa, so I'm sure she'll have a story (or more) to tell; I'll call her later tonight.

    I'm about 45 min. south of Cleveland, but didn't feel it. I was at the vets and it was pretty crazy in there. ;) They were talking about it on the local talk radio though.
