Thank You Blogland!

As most of you know we were struck with a severe magnitude 7.5 eahquake in the early hours of Monday morning. Since then I have received numerous emails from blog friends checking in and sending positive thoughts, best wishes and prayers.  Dear sweet Jan also put up a post.  I cried, in a good way :) when I read it.

I just want to say a huge thank you to Jan and to all of you who have been in contact.  I am deeply humbled, overwhelmed and once again reminded just how wonderful this community is.  I can't express how much it means to have your support at a time like this.

Things are slowly returning to normal...well semi normal but are not being helped now by torrential rain and strong winds to hamper the clean up process and disrupt transport again. Weather and slip related this time.

Fortunately, I  don't have to go anywhere today as work is once again closed to enable clean up.  We should be back to normal transmission tomorrow, depending on weather and transport I guess.

Rick and I are ok and fortunately haven't suffered any damage at home, but is has been a very scary couple of days and I am still feeling a little unsettled in the knowledge that the after shocks are continuing. Fortunately for me I haven't felt any in a while now...touch wood! They were pretty constant immediately following the main shock.

Thank you so much blogland. You are awesome ! :)

  1. It is a great community. I so wish we could all meet in person someday. Um... if you're through with the rain please send it here. We're fighting fires. If it's not chickens, it's feathers.

    1. Thanks so much Cat, rain has eased off a bit for now, back to drizzle. Yay. Apparently back to work tomorrow with the lifts not working and oh, we've also been told not to worry about the cracks we will see. Assurances they are superficial. Hmm

    1. Thanks so much DF. Seems chaos trying to get anywhere at the moment due to road closures, more from flooding and slips. Maybe I won't try going to work tomorrow :)

    1. Thank you so much Lindy, the rain has settled for now, but more on the way. Will be interesting to see what it is like in the city tomorrow. Transport and roadclosures, mainly due to weather issues are the biggest hurdle at the moment.

  9. I'll build on what Sunny said, you are an amazing, supportive person, and embody what the essence of the blogging community should be Roz. It is little wonder why so many reached out to you and were concerned for you and Rick.

    Hugs<- and I know you know the significance of that..LOL

  10. Really glad to hear you are OK, Roz. I do agree that this is a remarkable community of men and women. Whoever knew that there would come a day when people on the other side of the world would be sending prayers especially to you! Take good care of yourself and Rick, too.

    Sending Hugs Downunder,

    1. Thank you so much Ronnie, still a ton of after shocks which could continue for a considerable time, but fortunately a lot we don't notice. For now mother nature is keeping us on our toes.

  12. Hi Roz, :) So glad that things continue to be okay for you and Rick! I hope that the aftershocks are over and done with, and that things are getting cleared up, and are now safe there.

    You and Rick have been in my prayers non-stop! I agree with you. This is a pretty awesome community. We are all so lucky to be a part of it all. We are also lucky to have you front and centre, with your kindness, and supportive words found from post to post, all over the place! I don't know how you get around like you do! Must be those Cluedo moves! Lots of hugs and love,

    <3 Katie

    1. Hi Katie, thank you so much for your lovely words :) as I said to Ronnie the after shocks are continuing and will for some time but many aren't felt. It will be much better once all the slips etc from the torrential rain we have also had are cleared and road are fully open again and public transport is fully operational again.

      I certainly feel lucky to be part of this wonderful community. LoL re the Cleudo moves, perhaps I should try chess lol.

  14. Roz, it's good to hear from you again. I'm glad you weren't hurt, and a few days at home is probably what you need to get over the shock.

    Take care!

    1. Thanks so much Hermione, definitely needed a couple of days at home! Went back to work Wednesday and it has been unnerving being back in the city and building and also seeing the damage in the city. During the week a number of buildings have been evacuated and deemed unsafe.

      The quake has been upgraded to 7.8 and we can expect after shocks to continue for some time and some of them quite big.

  15. So pleased to hear you are okay! Down here in Southland we barely even felt it, and have been shocked looking at all the pictures in the media.
    Thinking of you, and hoping those aftershocks and weather settle down so the affected areas can concentrate on getting their lives back together!

  16. Thank you so much Kelly, so glad you didn't feel it, be glad! lol.

    The weather has improved over the last few days. We had some major slips in our area from the flooding which causes road closures. The road only opened again today.

    As for after shocks, still feeling very uneasy.

    Hugs
