Hmm.. I moved to Melbourne to get away from the quakes in Christchurch. Not as big as the aftershocks over there, but still a decent shake for a place that rarely gets quakes.

Bloody eastern staters.. getting all the fun.

Even when us WA'ers have a tornado it only hits the snobby burbs. bugger!



Western Aus will sink and no one would know until the mines all got soggy. lol

Joking aside, hope no one got hurt - spose we'll hear it on the news just before midnight here.

We are in, after all, Wait Awhile country over here..
