A much lower no 37, but still nice to be mentioned...
Hope you can find some other great veterinary blogs to read.
We survived the "storm" - it was devastating for many other places in New Zealand but Christchurch was spared the worst. The biggest problem was the earthquake damaged infrastructure meant the heavy rain created flooding for many parts of the city. Sewage also contaminates the flood waters in the river areas. Many people are now dealing with damaged houses and flooded cars, often wading through waist deep water to get to their stuff. It also made driving interesting for a few days, and although the snow was minimal here ( but incredibly heavy further south), the hard frosts this week have left a lot of black ice. The waters have mainly receded; the pot holes have returned. I really need my shock absorbers looked at. I think that comes under first world problems so it will keep.
At least the sun has been shining this week and we have been able to dry out the massive pile of towels we landed up with trying to protect our ceilings from the rain leaking though the roof. Urgent repairs the next step. A new roof completely to follow when we can.
I tried to get a picture of the supersized moon as I drove to work this week - so it is the bright light on the left hovering over the polytech towers where my office is... . Was impressive in real life - the picture can't do it justice.
Poppy came long to help the class design a transport crate that would be suitable to use to fly her overseas. They measured her carefully to make sure her cage would fit in the IATA transport rules. Of course she had plenty of dry bed and toys included in the design....
I hope she takes me if she really decides to go anywhere.
