The snow has almost completely gone now but in our amateur-weather-predicting defense, it a rather that dumped it on us. The complete lack of wind meant the snow clouds remained parked overhead, straight down in a sweet, floaty kind of way.

On Friday I ventured round to the house to see what progress had been made since the snow dump. The ground conditions ...

It is now 637 days since the first major Earthquake in Canterbury. Since then we have further experienced several major earthquakes which on a global level would devastate any city and we are continuing to experience ongoing aftershocks such such as the one last night which for many people close to the centre was a very violent shaking sensation. These all in different ways have had significant consequences for many people.

There's been a lot going on over the last couple of weeks including the odd winter sniffle. Luckily most of the snottiness has passed me by, inflicting most of its damage on the male members of the household.

Which is just as well, as I've been far too busy to get sick - organising protest meetings about public broadcasting, making my thoughts heard on the UC Arts proposal (votes/results ), working my last shifts at the Quake Box and doing some fill-in production work a few days a week... ...

In generations past, you didn’t attend weddings you couldn’t drive to and a ladies-lunch involved an asparagus roll and a cup of tea – not a bottle of bubbly or crème brulee in sight.  No one dreamed of asking their girlfriends to go quad-biking and you whipped up a new frock from a pattern book, not a designer fashion store.  The financial burden was somewhat lighter.

Today might not be a good day for some of us in Christchurch. It is 20 months since the first earthquakes started to shake our foundations around. The minister has just announced more land zone changes and this is going to have a direct impact on the lives of people. For some these latest announcements and the ones prior are a relief and the possibilities that come are beneficial for you but for others the zoning and the change is a huge burdon on our lives.

An article posted by the press mentioned that the bureaucratic process is more damaging than the one of the earthquakes. In some way to individual lives yes it is. Battling through trying to get something done is a mission and many of us know first hand the annoyance that is caused by this. But lets stop for a second and think about it before once again jumping to a conclusion and getting negaitive about it.
