It wasn't all that far from here so I felt it pretty bloody strong, got shit down on the floor everywhere (I have a LOT of books) and the motorbike fell off it's stand but the house is fine.

I just sat in my lazyboy gripping the sides and rode it out, was like a roller coaster.

SH1 is down to one lane south of Seddon, seems some big slips came down.
Haven't heard any more than that apart from the usual reports of some phone/power/water lines going down.

We got a bloody good shake in New Pymouth. I was in the shed working on the bike. I was wondering if it was going to fall over and was going to hang on to it when it stopped. Must have been a lot worse in Weelington

Weird rolling thing here in Dannevirke. Seemed to last for ages. Thought I was drunk, but I’d only had 1. Must’ve been pretty hard out closer to the real shebang.

I'm caught up with work tomorrow so I'm out. Don't give up on us slack bastards Steve. I can often get away in the week but at the moment I'm in the middle of a busy spell.

Cheers

Wayne

Steve, do you know something about earthquakes that the rest of us don't?
The next time you organise a ride, I'll either come with you or stay away from Wellington for the day.

By the way I'm loading trees into Shed 6 on the wharf next week so please stay at home and go into work as normal.

Cheers

Wayne
