Felt the CA based earthquake here in Western NY.  My whole house shook!  It felt like how I shake when I don't eat for days!  It was actually kind of scary
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa, cholestyramine, iron and vitamin supplements. 
Prepare for the future, but live in the present

Hey I felt it in downtown Pittsburgh too. I felt the floor moving under my chair for about 30 seconds or so -- co-workers all think I'm nuts because they didn't feel it. Then I jumped on line and saw the news. Wierd!!

I was sitting in class in Cleveland and I felt the floor vibrate a bit and then the table. People thought I was nuts! I didn't find out it was an actual earthquake until 3pm today when my mom told me. Crazy!

We felt the earthquake in downtown Cleveland as well. Many buildings evacuated because of the shaking.

We are in Vermont and we felt it! The house swayed, dishes rattled and the cat flew downstairs....
Quite exciting!

Apparently it came from Ottawa. I'm in Ontario and my whole house shook too! It was very cool. Hope there won't be any more tho... ;-)
It was an awfully large area, Ontario, Quebec, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio...
I thought we were safe up here in the north from all that crazy earthquake stuff.

It honestly took me a minute to realize you meant Canada and and not California. (CA) blush

It has been a long day...
Dx'd w/ Crohn's in 1979 at age 13. Bad flare 2008 but no health insurance so I dealt with it. Colonoscopy in July 2009 caused a perforated colon, emergency bowel resection. 2 fistula's, perianal and perivaginal.

Humira, probiotic, a multivitamin, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and fish oil. I also take Tramadol 50 mg and Klonopin (for anxiety) as needed.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!

We dont feel earthquakes down here much. La. is like Jello . I have had my chair vibrate before but its usually for a very short time and then there is an odd smell.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Haha welcome to my world. I think being born and raised in Southern California I don't pay much attention to them at all. The recent 7.3 quake in Baja California didn't even faze me. I was just laughing at everyone else panicking. But I know its scary if you aren't used to them. I just don't like it when I am at work and they happen. I work in a earthquake retrofitted building that sits on rollers, so when earthquakes hits the building keeps swaying for a bit even after the earthquake stops. WHOA!!!
