    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.

    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.

    Thanks so much Annie! It's been a big old year, so my nerves are probably more frayed than usual... I'm glad your daughter had fun though, that's cute. We have all the emergency stuff at hand so there's nothing more we can do.
    Hugs x

    I'm glad that you're OK, zoebird. You're tougher than me!

    Hi Heather, hang in there. i guess work out how safe where you are is and either stay put or run for the hills. maybe make sure you go fill your car with gas in case you need to get away. i dont scare easily but i really didnt enjoy the one we felt down here that killed all the people up in Chch. it's not a matter of toughness either as my kids were 7k up the road at school and it started shaking slowly here and kept going for a fair while. it was only mild in the end but you dont know till it stops. did you see the croods btw? i took the kids to see if a while back. they had an earthquake and it was what got them out of their cave.

    [[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.
