the other week, in innamincka (south australian/queensland outback loop) I was told, via 2 way radio from the hotel to the motel by the managers wife, that her mum had reported a tremor in the outer suburbs of Adelaide (capitol city of south australia).

we only got the state national paper once a week out there, and the manager's wife, concerened and aware (not truely aware) of incoming doom, read me an article about the fears of SA that mining nearby has caused concern at the Olympic dam. And other awaking of volcanic areas that appeared a few weeks before I went away..
