At 4.31pm I was sitting at my desk just like I was 2 weeks ago. Then the whole house rumbled, the foundations, the walls, the very earth. By the time I realised Melbourne had yet another earthquake, a 4.6 this time (last time was a 4.7), it had stopped. I strode outside and called to my neighbour. Did we just have another earthquake? She wanted to know. Yep, I said, shocked. Wild stuff. Melbourne and earthquakes were always such unlikely dance partners.
