Tigger is in Chch visiting her Mum, she's just texted to say she's ok. I burst into tears, I'm so glad.

My thoughts are with everyone, I hope you are all safe.

PS Just spoke with Simkin's hubby, he says she and their family are all ok, just a few things off walls but no major damage.

My thoughts are with you all. We were just in Christchurch last week, happy to see the city recovering. It feels so unreal!

Thanks for the heads up on Simkin PG!
Thanks also to this fantastic network for alerting us to the disaster and for the ability to check on all our extended LSB family, my thoughts are with all of you who are affected.

Horrible. We are OK. My older two boys' dad lives opposite the Arts Centre, the oldest is very worried because we haven't heard from him. We haven't heard from any friends in the city yet, I know the Everyone is really shaken - lots of tears. The news says it all. Rangiora looks fine for those who have loved ones there (drove in to pick up my boy from school). Really worried about everyone. Would be good to hear from NZApps, she works in a law office in the city centre.

I am sitting here at work with tears in my eyes. So much devestation, where do we all begin now?

My thoughts are with you all in the affected area.

That might explain why I can't get through to Telecom on the phone.

OMG, I have just watched the videos.... it is like a war zone.

There are no bad questions only those that are not asked.

I'm at home now in Chch city - it's really hard to get anywhere, the traffic is terrible and I think we are one of the few areas in ChCh with power. I was driving when it hit and all traffic ground to a halt, you could not drive the car at all. There is way more stuff thrown around in our homes than during the 4 Sept quake and the aftershocks are terrible - the one we just had which was a 5.5 is the first time I have ever screamed in all the quakes we have had, the noise was terrible and I could not get to the door for the shaking - they are very shallow quakes which makes them way worse. Nerves are finally shot to pieces. Thoughts and prayers are with everyone here and we are all going to have to be very supportive to each other for a long time.

I feel really helpless.

Finally heard from all OH's family who live down there and they all okay, phew. Spread out a bit and might be a while before the kids can get back to parents but at least they are okay.

Very stressful couple of hours.

My thoughts exactly, was in the process of planning how I would house MIL for 2 months until she goes to visit other son in US.[;)]

Will have to wait and see how much damage done to their property.

Same here although we're a long way away I know, but if anyone just wants to get right away from it all.

Does anyone know which company NZ Appaloosas works for?

Tomorrow is the day I will stop procrastinating.

Thinking of all the people in Chch...the news reports are terrifying. Thanks for posting about Tigger PG, I was hoping she'd get in touch...

We have a three bedroomed house in the Waikato which we can offer if anyone needs to get away - just send a pm or email.
