Instead of the usual decay pattern after the two large Friday 23rd earthquakes, we seem to be experiencing a ramp up of activity again. This is from the Geonet drums overnight. I think we are all feeling pretty drained and tired today - being dragged from sleep late at night and again at dawn to decent shakes is not easy. Although not as big, the dawn one reminded me of the Sept 7.1 all over again - very long, rolly, door banging, sirens going off in the still morning air. Some reports are saying it was two that ran together which would explain the length. We couldn't ignore it the way we had the 1.30 am one, so we got up and dressed... you know - be prepared and all that!

Really love being on holiday and feeling alright with some idleness. Just over two weeks post op now too so great to be walking around without a crutch!
Hope you all had a great, shake free start to your New Year!
