It’s been an awfully stressful 48 hour period for a lot of the country. Luckily, I’m based up in Auckland and the earth barely moved; as opposed to a girlfriend way down south whose bed turned into a bucking bronco. My family appears all to be OK; altho one brother is without power, he’s up above the flooding in Wellington and his furbabies are safe with him. Equally friends are also safe.
