We're all good and safe + families and will be up and running proper in a few days.
I don't doubt you'll be back pretty quick resource-wise but as you say ...rusticdog wrote:I think you'll find we'll be back a lot sooner. As it is our core systems aren't in Christchurch, so we haven't lost anything that makes the wheels turn, we've got enough machines and equipment to get guys on board, many of the staff already were setup to work from home as we often did so out of convenience.
So technically we're up and running now, just not mentally...that'll take a few days just to get into the right head space.
I'll 2nd that idea!Sidewinder wrote:I'm sure it's hard to try and get to a new normal with all of the aftershocks that keep the shake, rattle and roll going on.

This website was setup after the September quake, it basically is a Google Maps/Time Lapse showing the quakes, where they were centred and severity etc...you can choose which day to view, hit play and see it run through. The big quake on the 22nd you can see pretty much comes from nowhere then it's all on.
Thanks for the extended narrative of your situation RD. It really helps us understand what the true situation is down there right now.rusticdog wrote:You would think too given the September quake I've have had an emergency kit all ready to go, all I can say is
