We are not in Christchurch and are OK. We won’t be going to the South Island for a long time…. um….. tomorrow.
Lots of people around here have been calling friends and families. Some rushed home taking the ferry and rental cars because planes are not going. Local stories of little old ladies crawling out of their windows to get out of the house, broken glass, close calls. At times like these it is good to remember the people more than worry about the stuff although many have lost almost all that is breakable in their home. At present 60+ reported dead.
Will pray for families of the dead and wisdom for those going through rubble.
