K so Wellington just had a succession of large-ish earthquakes (6.2, 5.7, 5.3) in the last half hour.

I am becoming far too familiar with the underneath of my desk.

And the guys who were on the roof of the building next door doing assessments for repairs after the last big one, well - they've all gone home to change their undies.

I spontaneously decided to take a half day to burn up some leave...feeling really grateful I wasn't out on the waterfront for this one

it was so nice to see people walking though!

I wish we could do more of it in such a weather :)

I.e. instead of sitting in a stuffy office all day long.

I was in the car when the news came on and they talked about it. I thought of you! You guys are being rocked all around the shop lately. Hope this series of quakes ends pretty soon :(

We used to get tremors all the time when I lived up north, and my husband who grew up in Australia would always hit the deck for even just a small one, I guess I have lived through enough I barely register them anymore.

Heard this on the news this morning and logged on to check how you were doing! Glad to hear you're doing alright, but I also hope you don't have to spend any more time getting to know the underneath of your desk!

I don't envy those builders a bit! Although, they will have the best story to regal people with ever after that!

This is true. I expect much builder-talk was had over much beer that evening.
