Heya seaweed- yes, all safe just shaken- 34 aftershocks overnight! We are safe here- the house is built on stilts so it moves a lot but that is a good thing for quakes, apparently (logic seems to bugger off when it's rolling!)

I didnt see The Croods, but I might go for Monsters Uni for some distraction later this week
well, there were lots and lots of them all night, and teeny little aftershocks rolling in every 5 minutes. It mostly feels like a vibration through the body.
We made our go-bags, and DS was *so* cute about it all when we got up this morning. We packed his go back with his favorite books, his lego (his favorite toy), and his wooden sword (other favorite toy). I knew this is what would help him, so that's what we packed. THen we sorted everything else (our normal work bags, which carry everything we need), sorted our clothes to go, and went ot bed.
Around 3 am, there were several larger quakes that we could really feel (woke us), but i cannot get the stats from GEONEt and it's driving me nuts. Where is page 2 darn it! LOL
That is too sweet! I hope he's OK with it all

I heard tell of a little one born shortly after the Christchurch quake. For him, earthquakes became the norm. Crazy. Like African children born who have never seen rain because they were born during a drought.
Things were pretty shaky in Golden Bay but have not felt the aftershocks here. Was just about to pour wine when it started.
