Thanks Durdy ,
good to have another heads up.
We have had some heavy weather already this autumn here in NZ .
Two lots of torrential rain/windstorms last month , one a two day marathon , and the other a one dayer .
Here in Canterbury they caused even greater flood damage than they would have a few years ago .
Earthquake damaged storm drains and roads in some areas resulted in serious partial flooding .
And in others , with the land having subsided to near sea level , (Christchurch City has dropped by 20 to 30 centimetres in many places and, in others, by quite a lot more) , extensive flooding and building damage (more condemned buildings and insurance claims ) caused yet more distress .
I'm glad that after 3 years of temporary accommodations , (approx. 12 moves ) , I've found a place 20 miles out of town , (one that does not flood), and I have all my possessions in one place again , sawmill and lathe included
