Off Topic: As the Crow flies........

Post  Nostalgic on 2017-02-16, 5:20 am

there is about 500  miles between Auckland and Christchurch on the South Island but there cannot be a bigger contrast in weather.  Up here we have heavy unusual unwanted Summer rain.  Down there they have been desperately fighting bush fires in parched conditions over the past three days almost on the outskirts of the city and a dozen or so homes have been destroyed.  One of them was a man who moved to the suburbs when his city house was destroyed in the 2011 earthquake.  

In world events it is pretty small but is huge over here. Or as the newscaster reported as much land to contain two thousand rugby pitches has been destroyed.  I suppose that puts it into perspective for the average Kiwi.

I guess that wherever we go to live the dream we will find a nightmare. I wonder if there is a place called utopia.

Was just reading about this and I thought of you and BCK and your families and friends. I know you live some distance away but it is still awful to see what is happening to your fellow countrymen and women and their families. Terrifying and devastating. Stay safe  I love you

There is but it's certainly not called Auckland. To find it just head any where further south!
