Saturday morning’s earthquake in Christchurch was a frightening reminder of how helpless we can be in the time of a natural disaster.

While the initial response from local government and other agencies is to be commended, the effects of the huge quake will be around for some time and aren’t easily fixed.  My thoughts go out to those who have lost homes and businesses, and I’m heartened by Cantabrians “can do” attitude to getting on with life now the shaking has subsided.

It’s a reminder that we should always be prepared for the ‘big one’ insofar as having essential supplies on hand in case a disaster occurs.
