earthquake snow?

one of the women in my office is insisting that "the earthquake caused this snow because of the atmospheric change caused by the shift along the faultline".

i told her that i highly doubted that. but i'm far from being a meterologist, can an earthquake cause a significant change in weather?

Yes an earthquake can lead to a change in weather ... but not so suddenly
The snow isn't caused by the earthquake ... most likely is because there is a polar air mass moving through southern ontario
Weather like were are experiencing now ... is pretty much always related to a polar air mass moving through the area

I just checked environment Canada ... and I was right
The polar jet stream has shifted ... resulting in colder tempertaures in our area

A shift in the faultline is a shift in the faultline. There's no atmospheric change, at least not enough to bring snow in unexpectedly.

Maybe you could ask her to explain to you how a shift in a faultline could cause any changes in the atmosphere. She'd have a hard time explaining that one.

Pete <- bitter about all this snow nonsense.

Would have to be quite the earthquake...

A 5.4 is fuckall anyway... might want to point out to her that the scale is logarithmic...

So, a 6 on the scale is 10 times stronger than a 5.... a 7 is 100 times stronger than a 5... an 8 is 1000 times stronger...

An 8.6 hit Chile back in 1960... the resulting tsunami caused a wack of damage in Hawaii, but no snow or locusts.

I was on my way back to Toronto and spending a night crashing at a friend's in Montreal when the earthquake shook me awake.

I was staying in my friend's studio and everything was shaking, including me and the old heavy-looking 'chandalier'-thing directly above me.

I had an argument with myself about moving out from underneath it or falling back to sleep - I chose falling back to sleep. Lazy, evil bastard.

When I fell asleep I had a dream that someone took out part of NYC with a small suitcase nuke :( and the earth had shook in Montreal. When I woke up I wasn't sure it (the earthquake) had really happened or was part of the dream.

An earthquake - No. A volcano - Yes. When Mt Vesuvious (sp) errupted the ash that was released caused a global tempature drop of about 2 degees celcius for approximately 2 years.

The only way an earthquake could cause such a tempature change is if we actually moved closer to one of the poles geographically as a result of the quake. 5.5 is not going to do that :)

This weather was forecasted last week, before the earthquake.
