Hi Vic

All fine here if somewhat shaken, on Friday we had 5.8, 5.3, 6.0 and ongoing ever since as seen here.

Would be nice to get some sleep but the keep on rocking through the night, slowing down ever so slowly.
Don't leave my chair, or bed, for anything less than a 5 these days.

5.8 this morning... NZ seems a quiet and peaceful place to travel to, it seems.

I wish you all kiwis the best luck and a Happy new Year.

Spare a thought for us Brits too. We had to contend with gusts up to 35MPH this morning. Numerous reports of umbrellas turning inside out. Unconfirmed reports that a temporary bus stop sign nearly got blown over as well. It's chaos here, chaos.

If you don't believe me, just take a look at this.

Poor Charlie Brown, he has no umbrella :(

And no though for Brits. If you want not to be European, don't ask for European thoughts XD

(and I don't mean kiwis want to be European... but most of us would be happy been kiwis)

Hmmm... I thought that was just a regular average day in England.

BTW we've now had 9378 shakes since 4th September 2010.

A 5.2 kindly woke us at 01:21 today, we are still getting some 5s but mostly in the 3s and 4 ranges.
I don't get out of bed or out of my chair for anything less than a 6 these days.
We are also pretty good at guessing individual shake magnitudes by now ;-)

Hehe... Now that you point that out it I can see that a bit. But not sure why that should sound funny to you. Wasn't eating people a native past time at one time?
