Aw quit squawking, does 4.7 even cause any damage? :snooze:
Try living in a bushfire zone! :eek:
At least we've had a cool and damp summer so far, couldn't bear another like last year!

Just to "live the double" - we live in one as well...!

But loving the fact it's cool and damp for you guys, the last couple of years have been tragic.

I find this stat...disturbing :( @:worried:@:worried:@:worried:@:worried:@:worried:@:worried:@:worried:@:worried:


Canada has had: (M1.5 or greater)

  • 0 earthquakes in the past 24 hours
  • 8 earthquakes in the past 7 days
  • 25 earthquakes in the past 30 days
  • 327 earthquakes in the past 365 days

The largest earthquake in Canada:​



Then I suggest you don't google lightning strikes ...

Fun fact:

We all know that a mausoleum is an elaborate above ground tomb, but the word actually comes from an "inhabitant" of one of the "seven wonders of the ancient world."

The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus or Tomb of "King" Mausolus.


Mausolus was a ruler of Caria.


Good morning!

And is the capital O necessary ? I realise it is the beginning of a sentence ... but
No not necessary these days, in fact the only remaining grammar rule that is necessary is that you can't end a sentence with 'but'! :devil:

Sigh...

None of this has anything to do with my post.

Sheesh!

Remember when we were taught to angle the address when writing a letter?

I thought the change to straight down (left margin) was a super big change!
