Getting closer

That was a close one! Just as Heather was helping me into my trousers around 3.15pm after a snooze, the house banged and rattled, dresser mirrors waved back and forth, and we said "That was strong!" In fact it was a respectable 4.78, 6km away from the house, off Waimairi Beach, 9km deep.

You don't feel quite so blasé about shocks when you're on crutches; the possibility of a quick dash to safety is pretty remote.
