And another one…

6.9 this time. We were just settling down to watch a film and our flat started shaking but it soon became apparent that this was a big one so when the washing up started falling on the floor we ran to the bathroom doorway and stood there waiting it out – don’t think our hearts have gone that fast since cross country in middle school…everyone in our block came outside afterwards and said hello and checked everyone was alright which was nice. First thing tomorrow it’s time to get an earthquake kit together I think! We’ve had several aftershocks from the ones over the weekend and the CBD has had glass everywhere and concrete collapse but thankfully everyone seems to be ok. New Zealand has 20,000 earthquakes a year so it was going to happen at some point but was hoping they’d be somewhat further apart!

    I am glad you guys are OK and didn’t suffer any damage, I was waiting for a post to see how it affected you. At least you are getting the full NZ experience :)

      Yeah we’re alright thanks Phil! Yes that’s one thing ticked off the list, just glad it wasn’t worse. Everything’s just about getting back to normal thankfully :)

Any thoughts?
