I know the feeling. In Comrie I slept through several earthquakes - including one that my Mum thought was me rattling the door handle and pretending to be an earthquake.


i've been told that NZ is now 12inches closer to the australia since the earthquake.
that should make the trip back to sydney a bit quicker


Yes, the British media (Guardian, at least) are also reporting that the south-west tip of the South Island is 30cm closer:

"Global positioning systems showed that Te Anau, a town in the remote Fiordland region, was now 10cm closer to Australia, it said, while the South Island's south-western tip, Puysegur Point, was 30cm (11.8ins) closer."


Ian, it's a wonder you weren't killed. Or lightly scratched...
