A bit repetitive aren't you? You need to travel somewhere different
We enjoyed our visit to Sean's workplace too (so many years ago now!) but got a cuppa and a personal tour.
It has been exciting here with all the earthquakes. Our whole state highway 1, the main road down the east coast of the South Island, has been closed due to major quake damage and it will take a year or two to fix. This has caused big problems for freight. The main railway line has been destroyed, along with SH1, and the alternative road is winding and narrow and never built for the amount of traffic now on it, nor big trucks!
We were lucky as we had been overseas for a month before the quakes started so the water level in the 4ft had dropped a couple of inches (due to evaporation), and the rotala had overgrown and covered most of the surface. When the 7.8 quake hit, just after midnight 14th November, the plant baffled a lot of the water movement and the lower water level meant not quite as much mess on the floor as would have occurred had I topped the tank up and cut back the plant!
There have been constant aftershocks since, many between 5.5 and 5.8. Personally we have suffered no major damage. Luckily our tank has a solid wooden lid so when Grant's antique Ansonia clock came crashing down from above the tank, it bounced off the lid before hitting the floor. If there had been no wooden lid, the clock would have hit pretty much centre of the top of the front glass and we would have had an even bigger mess plus dead fish everywhere.
