The life and times of an iPhone blogger

Since I'll be in France for most of the summer I'll be posting this blog from my iPhone. This means that it'll probably shorten the posts since typing with two thumbs is not the fastest way to type although I do get along quite well.
Hopefully I will be able to post regularly since I will have to find free WiFi spots in cafés and things. I will also try to include as many photos as I can, though they will probably be more low res photos taken with my iPhone. Hopefully they won't be too bad. Maybe I will be able to find a way to download pictures from my DSLR into my picture gallery.

Rock and Roll

Jazz and I both live on the island of Montreal if you hadn’t figured it out yet, but I bet that you didn’t know that Montreal is in a major earthquake zone. Yep, we are very seismically active, not as much as California but active none the less. There are three major faults in Québec. One the runs along the St. Lawrence River valley, one that runs north along the Outaouais River (that’s the Ottawa River for the rest of you) and the last that runs along the Saguenay River up to Chicoutimi.
Today just north of Ottawa, in Buckingham, there was a magnitude of 5.0 earthquake that lasted for 40 seconds. Here in Montréal we could easily feel the house shake, the windows and dishes rattle and there were even some books and papers that ended up on the floor. It was quite interesting. This is the second earthquake I’ve felt since I’ve been living in Montréal. The last one had the chandeliers swinging. Mind you, they are nothing compared to the ones in Haiti or Chili, thank diety, because the one we had was interesting enough as it was and I wouldn’t want to live through one that was much bigger.
If any of you are curious here is a link to the story on the CBC.
