Yes, I am for real. We experienced a tremor here in Melton, with the epicentre being about 170km (106 miles) away from us near Moe, Victoria.
It was recorded at 5.3 on the Richter scale, but no major damage has been recorded so far. Here is the latest from news.com.au
I was sitting in my computer chair drafting a post on the Simple Green Frugal Co-op, when my chair began to shake. I called out to Kim to see if she felt it, and she obviously did because at the same time, she called out to me. Kim started to call friends to see what was going on. It lasted for about 7 seconds.
I hit the social networks straight away to see if anyone else had experienced anything, and almost instantly, Facebook and Twitter lit up with the news, at least 30 minutes before the mainstream media got a story to air. Thank goodness it wasn’t major.
Anyway, enough excitement for one day! I still feel a bit funny and now I know what it feels like to dance with Gaia!
