    It's been an odd week here:

    We felt the 5.5 earthquake this week.
    There was a funnel cloud nearby on the same day as the earthquake.
    And there have been several black bear sightings in recent weeks.

    What the heck is going on ?!?!?!

    You must be shifting closer to us here in Ontario lol. Felt the earthquake too, no tornado in my city but a few good ones in the province, and although I live in a city of 56 thousand people, we get bears in easy child's school yard (block and a half from my house) and twice we've had them destroy our garbage despite living in the middle of the city. We also had a cougar for a week stalking the back door of my mom and her neighbors.

    What is going on is right lol

    We have had several bear sighting as well - very strange. Either he travels a long way over night, or there have been multiple bears.

    I felt the earthquake, too - but no funnel cloud for me. Of course I left for Virginia the next day, so I missed the news.

    Here in nw CT we see bears all the time, so often we name our favorites!!!

    No funnels up by us but we also felt the tremors from the quake.

    Things are getting stranger and strange.

    Wendy, the funnel cloud was in Cattaraugus County.

    MM- We're in a suburban village with rural areas very nearby. I'm actually more afraid for the bear than of the bear. Some fool is likely to do something that will cause the bear to be destroyed.
