Offline for a Few Days

The South Island of New Zealand had a major snowfall on Sunday night, with 1-2 feet of snow on our section. There was no warning that this was coming. I was in the office at 4am on Monday to get on with my work, and then the power went out at 6am (and my UPS system failed too!). Power was back on 34 hours later, but the phones (and thus broadband) are still out, and cellphone coverage is out too. Telecom says it might be 7-10 days before everyone is restored.

So … posting will be sporadic. I’ve driven to the nearest town (Darfield) and am using my Telecom wireless T3G card to post.

We are all okay.

See Stuff
