Quake 2011

For all of us Kiwis it's been a shocking week, when 102 (so far) people have been confirmed as having been killed in the Christchurch earthquake, and so many places that I know so well have been destroyed (as I've seen on TV).

Having heard of people close to those I know being killed, I've been relieved that nobody I know of has been anything other than spooked (including friends and family of the Kiwis I work with), although from catching up with my folks it does sound like some family have had very serious property damage.

My best friend growing up Bernie posted some shocking pictures of the previous 'quake in Christchurch and has put up a blog of his experience this week. I'm just glad both he and his family are OK, and am thinking of those who have not been so lucky. Hopefully I'll get a chance to catch up with him when I'm back in New Zealand later this year.

My thoughts and best wishes are with everyone affected.
