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 🙁

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.

That would have been good, yes 🙂

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/

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!

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