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.

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.

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.
