    Rude Awakening

    For anyone interested.
    This is what I've had to deal with this morning. Started Friday. These were this morning.

    I don't want to scare you but be prepared just in case. That's some movement you guys have going on.

    Well they are saying it could be the big one. In 27 years i have never felt them like this before.

    Aftershocks are all magnitude 4.5 and above. 5kms deep.

    Still going on. 6.0 is the most recent one Ive heard of. Looks pretty scary.

    Hoping that the structural engineers this time around, are extra careful after what happened in ChCh.

    Everyone okay where you're at?

    EDIT:
    My bad, meant to say Tasman instead of Foveaux. Bloody Aucklanders.

    Hahahaha.

    All okay here. Haven't had a full nights sleep since wednesday night. Keep getting woken up. Emergency services flat tack, CBD is a ghost town, most of our shops are closed. A fair bit of damage in Seddon and Tua Marina. Supermarkets are a mess. and the quakes are still going.

    It's exciting. But when it comes to quakes there is a fine line between exciting and devastating.

    Oh i am freaking out mate. Never experienced this before. And seddon is only 15 minutes away. We are getting the brunt of it. Sirens all over the place, no power to half of blenheim. Worrying stuff.

    Family in seddon. Mother in tears.

    We still have internet so i can still play A Realm Reborn.

    And that my friend is why they call us gamers.



    Seriously though, hope all is well down there aye. Really makes you think about those "get prepared" ads on telly by Civil Defence.

    Well after an hour of continuous shaking, it's stopped ever so slightly.
