Earthquakes here in NZ
It's been a shaky Sunday- approx 6 quakes today and just had a massive 6.5 shaker.
I have no clue what Grok would do but I'm thinking about a big glass of wine and a cry. Waiting for the aftershocks is horrible.
it doesn't bother me. I find them really enjoyable.
Hi Heather, please don't cry. You have come through them so far, it's just something that happens. Enjoyable might be overstating it for most of us though
Little anecdote: My daughter's first day at playcentre coincided with earthquake drill. It was the highlight of her morning as she reported to Daddy later "We played Earthquake!"
Peace. Hope you sleep well.
No quakes in Auckland, sorry for what you're going through Heather.
Have that glass of wine, whatever makes you feel better.
I am out of red wine! UGH. Found a pinot gris though, and into I'm all over that like white on rice.

[[hugs]] Heather. They scare me also. When I lived in CA, a big one would reduce me to tears. Drinking is good in this instance.
