So far September has been good and bad for New Zealanders. First we had the really bad earthquake in Christchurch. It's going to take a long time for the city to recover with some of their historic buildings badly damaged and others buildings needing to be demolished.
Then we had a really bad storm sweep up through the country in the last few days with floods, strong winds and Southland had heavy snow with the roof falling in on some buildings in Invercargill.
Spring seems to be arriving at last with a sunny day at the top of the South Island, but the clouds are now rolling in so I think it's time to close the doors and stay inside in the warm. Working on the work in progress novel sounds good to me.
