#eqnz Oh, that was a big one. A really big one. A growling rumble that built and built until the whole house was shuddering and banging.
So, erm, “fuck that was bad but we’re ok” big or “fuck, it’s another destroyer” big? #eqnz
hmm somewhere between?
Fuck, that bad.
Wonder if the Grand Chancellor is still standing? Hope all the SAR guys are safe & ok. #eqnz
#eqnz Realized after I’d snatched the wee girl from her bed during that big aftershock… I was still holding a glass of vino. Disgraceful.
We felt that in Ashburton! #eqnz
