Thank goodness I was working from home this afternoon when we had another big one.
At first I thought I was dizzy from not eating much as I have been busy and kept thinking I will stop soon, but hadn't. It didn't make the usual rumbling it makes so wasn't until Tess starting running around I realised. I tried to get her to pull her under the desk, but she was beside her self crying and running poor wee thing. Finally got her under the table and cuddled her. Erns didn't wake up or bat an eye.
There was a few bigger after shocks during the afternoon and each time she ran around the room squealing. I am trying not to make a big deal about it with her and as we don't know when they will happen can't give her anything.
Tonight we are sleeping in our clothes.
Oh my! I can't even imagine being in an earthquake. You're area has had so many. Poor Tess it's sad she's so terrified. I'm glad her Mom was home.
Aw, poor girl. Stay safe.
The only time I was ever in an earthquake (it was small) I was in a lab and bottles on the shelf were clanking. We realized it was an earthquake and two guys tried to run out the door at the same time and got stuck, had to back up...just like in the cartoons. It was hilarious.
In 50 years I have never know us to have as many as we have the last few months. We would go years and hardly a shake. Most of us never had an earthquake kit even though we were suppose to. Now we all have them in the car, work and home. I felt bad for people in the city as public transport stopped and everyone was trying to get out of the city so grid locked until about 9pm. I could have walked home, but many can't
Oh, poor Tess. I hope you guys don't have anymore and you all stay safe. That's a scary thing.
Poor Tess, I hate when they are so scared. Stay safe.

Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.
Poor Tess. I have been in many earthquakes, some big ones, and it is scary. It is one of the reasons we left California, Los Angeles area. I am so sorry you have to go through this.
Isn't it great to have a sister
I can't imagine that either ! How heart breaking to hear a dog fretting because it's something that they don't understand.
I got the same feeling on the first couple of nights after Jasper's surgery when he was crying with the pain.
It was interesting to see your cardboard cathedral though !
Poor Tess. That was scary alright. I've been watching the news channel & the TVNZ site most of the evening. With the trains & buses canceled, it looked like chaos. I wonder how many people made it home?
Considering it was centered at the top of the south island, I'm amazed there wasn't a tsunami across Cook Stait. I hope this isn't the start of a quake that wrecked Christchurch. Stay safe FGS!
Oh my gosh, I cannot imagine what it's like to experience that.
Do you think maybe a thundershirt would help Tess? You could put it on her when you have to leave her and cannot be with her, just in case.
