Terrible what has happened, seems we can't take a trick with mother nature down under at the moment.

Two of my good mates are from Christchurch, they told me about doing earthquake training at school in the 70's which in a typical understated Kiwi way invoved getting under your desk if you weren't first to the door jamb. Never thought they would need it until recently. Few of your boys on sites like iseekgolf.com.au and ozgolf.net if you wanted to talk golf and rugby.

Wow that was a big shake. It felt a lot bigger than the 7.1 in September. I was in the central city at work when it hit, fortunately our building was fine and everybody got out okay. I work about a minute's walk from a couple of the buildings that collapsed. The central city is a complete mess, it's gonna take a long long time to clean it up, years for it to get anywhere near back to normal. I don't know if anybody remembers the damage from the September quake but this time it is a LOT worse.

Glad to hear you're fine microcrayfish . Was in Christchurch a couple of years ago, stayed at the Heritage and the view from our room was at the cathedral so to see it as it is today is a crying shame. My thoughts are with those who weren't as fortunate as yourself...
