The ground is still shaking

Well what a week, woken just after midnight Monday to a 7.8 earthquake centered just 16km or so away – a long night awake, checking on neighbours, organising emergency power – amazingly while the power was out our water system survived and we had internet and cellphone access – a huge thank you to RadioNZ for providing constant updates via streaming.

The clean up in Hanmer Springs is all done and the town is full open ‘for business’ – our thoughts go out to the other people of North Canterbury to the north east of us that have significantly more damage. Thankfully, after a day of heavy storms the sun is shining, may it continue.
