    hi Guys and Gals

    just a little earthquake humour from my home country....

    As many of you may know, Christchurch City in New Zealand suffered badly in the series of large quakes throughout 2010 and 2011. Here's a little humour and stress relief from one of the city councils.....

    That seems to be Christchurch Southern Motorway, near Canterbury Agricultural Park, with Cashmere Hills in the distance.

    Yes, quite possibly, definately the Port Hills in the background
    Im heading over there in July to catch up with my kids and my ma and pa and co.
    Will have to see if this sign is still there and if I can find it.

    I stole the pic from my daughter's facebook page ;)

    Port Hills is the proper name. Lyttelton would be on the other side. I have a 3rd cousin who lives in Cashmere Hills which is up in the hills below the crest. Their house was damaged, but they have a place up north on the SI.

    Can't believe it has been more than 2 years. I lived the Christchurch in Fendalton till around 1995, my parents regularly take a walk in Mona Vale and see the ducks in Avon River. With the quakes and what not I'm pretty sure I won't be able to recognise anything if I ever go to these places again.
