Thank you everyone who has commented and messaged with kind thoughts after last night’s 7.5 earthquake here in NZ.
Mr D and Fiss and I, and his extended family (and, as far as I can tell, all of my friends) are safe, but rather shaken. Our house is just fine, though every door in the house (including those dratted kitchen cupboards) did slam open and shut for two minutes while the quake went on.
There has been a bit of damage around Wellington, and a lot further south, where the epicentre was, and injuries and at least a couple of deaths. It’s not good news.
Please keep NZ in your thoughts and prayers – the aftershocks have gone on all night, and there is still a tsunami watch, though it has been downgraded.
