    Meant to be 21 degrees tomorow thought I might go up to the pier for a fish although meant to turn cold southerly and rain in the evening. Might be best to wait till next weekend and see what the weathers like, still seems like it’s raining every couple days.

    I went for a look today , just around wainoni ….Im in the building trade , and can tell you this event is huge ….there will be thousands of houses beyond repair ……

    Old Ru , if he still lives there , was right next to what appears one of many fault lines that opened up , a house built over these lines will be pretty much rooted

    Porritt park hockey grounds are a right off , from the other side of the river Id pick the old Leander Lounge “rowing club” will be condemned , at least 1 side of it ….the boat shed next to it looks no better ….I saw dozens and dozens of houses that are poked …..

    Wont be doing much fishing this season Id pick ….its gunna be work work work

    This crazy wind and bit of rain we had can’t be helping much. It’s going to take months and months for all the houses that need to be rebuilt.

    That “fault line” goes thru the edge of their house , up the drive and thru the garage ….rooting everything ……..it continues thru other houses , across Pembroke St , thru more houses and then thru my mates place ……its split in half …mind blowing to see …he walked me thru it
    He had recently added 2 br’s and garage behind the old house , linked by a conservatory
    The conservatory was destroyed ……the garage and house moved 6 inches towards the river ..garage dropped 8 inches into the ground at one end
    house split in half with the front continuing to sink lower into the ground ….even the fence got ripped into 4-5 sections
    The crack continued on thru 5 more properties he said …
    Every house over that line will be rooted ….

    The house directly behind that one on TV would be ok , the crack would have just tickled the very corner of the property …
    You still in CHCH ru ?
