Feeling a bit nervous.
A quick post, nearly my 100th, wow that hasn't taken long. I'm up and dressed and it's 12.33 in the morning we have had 2 big after-shocks since 11.25pm and I really terrified. We have at least 5 today over 5RS and it is really so wearing on the nerves. Went to work today because we knew we would have clients and we had 12 but thank god 5 went home at lunchtime, we are only 2 main streets over from the CBD, and our building though it looks all right really moaned and groaned with each tremour, the water situation is such the Boss cancelled work till we have an all clear on the cleanliness of the water. No damage to our house, good old 1970's construction they weren't pretty but they were solid, but we now have a few small slumps on the road by our drive. Aj and Tom are sleeping on the lounge floor now as we have had some really big tremours tonight.I can't describe the terror of such a large earthquake, but we those of us at work today all agree it is by far the most scary thing we have ever experienced.Barry found it terrifying on the 2nd floor of the hospital, they told him after surgery on Friday he needed to go home to peace and quiet and a stressless environment. HaHa. Tomorrow we shall do some stocking up of supplies, we need more batteries etc..........and water bottles. thinking of you all hope you are safe where-ever you are...........Love Aunt Bee.
