Doing ok oldtimer? Whats up down under?
OldTimer's in Auckland I believe - top of the North Island. The quake is in Christchurch, middle of the South Island, so unless he's travelling thataway I'm guessing he's just fine.
Christchurch is a bloody mess though. Holding back on phoning friends until things have settled down, but it sounds as if there is substantially more damage than the big one in September. A delayed double-whammy I guess.
