I think your graphic news shot shows the terrible extent of the impact it had on this joint.

Hey that’s not the worst of it, the sliding door to my walk in robe opened like 1cm or so, I had to work up the motivation to get up and close it, that was bad!

Funny, yes.

Less funny is when it’s just recycled fodder from Virginia last year. http://blahbethany.com/2011/08/23/virginia-earthquake-2011-we-will-rebuild-never-forget/

Yes, I had seen it before too. It would have been truly funny if it would have been a fresh image of something recognisably Canberran. Like a fallen over wheelie bin.

Or a fallen over owl, perhaps?

When I woke up this morning and saw everyone talking about it on facebook, I immediately thought I’d have to take a photo of the various precariously balanced things I’ve got in my apartment. Nope, nothing fell at all :(
