4am Wellington Time: our apartment building wakes my jet-lagged ass up by pretending to be California. The epicenter of the earthquake was about 200 miles south of us (about 300 KM for you keeping score), and it was HUGE!!!! like, 7.1.
I'm just going to admit that I have only ever been in very mild earthquakes and so I find them fun and almost relaxing. Like a gentle roller-coaster. Like the lazy river ride in Wild Rivers.
So, one more reason I am incredibly lucky to live in well-developed nations where seismic retrofitting and disaster-preparedness education are big cultural mandates.
