As some of you may or may not be aware, at around 2pm this afternoon Christchurch was hit by another TWO earthquakes plus several aftershocks ranging between 5.0 and 6.0

Just sending out my thoughts and well wishes to all of you down that way, particularly so close to christmas, also willing to offer a couple of beds if anyone wants to get out of the shaky city even for a few days.

Thanks <3

I think we're all just glad no one was killed, and damage wasn't as bad.
Hope my fellow Chchers are all ok, and are managing to get some sleep despite the shaky ground.

Well, I was at the hairdressers when the 5.8 and 6.0 aftershocks happened, but I'm safe and unharmed. I just wish they would stop! >_<

^Just wait till you're in a decent one. Nothing you learned in school really helps XD
Except for maybe the need to survive by diving under a desk/doorway

I agree Mandie - I got told by all of my university lecturers last year to just leave all our stuff and get under the desks quick as.

^pretty much.

Though there is that moment when you hear it of thinking 'How big will it get?' 'can I just wait it out?' 'do I need to duck and cover?'
It's quite funny to think just how fast the brain reacts as soon as it knows there's an earthquake/aftershock coming.

Exactly - and I'm slowly getting back into the mood of sleeping through the aftershocks now.

One year on guys.
One year and look what we've come from!

I'm putting this on a site, and thought I'd take a snipped to share with you guys too. For those that don't know, I lost my Uncle and Optometrist a year ago due to the Quake.

Spoiler:
 

I had always heard "a disaster brings people together" ... but you really don't understand that phrase until you really do experience it.
People have so much bad press these days: violence, thieves, murders... sometimes you forget the kindness and compassion complete strangers can truly have for one another. A small act, even just the thought, goes a long way.

Anyway, just wanted to share it.
I hope you guys in Chch are doing okay!
Also, thanks to everyone in this thread, who posted updates, support, offers of accommodation and help, and thoughts. I love you guys! chuu~!
