Just by way of sharing with the regular posters, it's been a wild day here. We've had a few little quakes near me over the last couple of days, but we had a big one this morning, and a huge 6.5 this evening that lasted 30 seconds and had my house moving back and forth like an angry giant had a hold of it. I was in the shower when this morning's quake hit, and I thought I was going to fall through the glass. I always thought experiencing a decent earthquake would be an adventure before coming to live in NZ, but, by heck, the 6.5 was not funny at all!!! My wife Chris is duty manager at the hospital tonight, and she was dreading going to work, because she has to organise things if it goes seriously pear shaped while she's in charge.
OK guys. Sorry for the off topic, but I kind of needed to get that off my chest, so to speak.
