Christchurch, New Zealand Earthquake

A photo of the street near Erin and Stephen's house after the 7.1 earthquake near Christchurch this morning. We had a couple of hours of worry until they walked to a friend's place that still had power, phone and water! Parents are happy and a little more relaxed, though NZ news saws many people will be evacuated out of the city.

For more on the fortunes of Christchurch a year after the quakes see my updates in January, 2012.


  1. 2am Sunday morning here in Christchurch and we just finished watching a movie. It felt like we were on a cruise ship rumbling softly through the ocean. Very weird feeling. Not much sleep here.
    Love you lots,

  2. I imagine its going to take a while for sleep to come easily after the excitement of waking up to an earthquake. Thinking of you both with love, Mom
