Oh you know, a bit more masturbation, beating the kids, etc :P

But seriously, I don't spend a lot of time on these forums despite all appearances to the contrary.

I work in IT, so I'm near a computer most of the time anywho.

Didn't hear of anyone evacuating in Wellington, I think only up north.

We live about 220m above sea level, so a tsunami is the least of our concerns.

Any quake big enough to cause a tsunami that can reach us 220m up and about 6 kilometers inland would probably cause NZ to sink beneath the waves.

That would do some damage all the same. Frightening when you recall the images from Bali and Japan.

Sat on a hill in the sunshine most of yesterday (about 40 metres above sea level), with a bunch of neighbours. We were waiting for the tsunami, which fortunately never arrived. 

Checked out Mozzy's latest YT vids.

I missed you guys.

I spent most of the extra in time my teenage daughter highschool whatsapp parents discussion group. I will not elaborate, but in comparison this forum looks quite tame and sane.

Now that sounds mindbendingly head wrecking, listening to all the knobs full of perfection. Been there, have the scars, best avoided.

You know what it's like, the great unwashed have no interest unless the cup match is on.

Beware,  the Fukishima tsunami up-wash reached heights of up to 40.5 metres (133 ft) in Miyako in Tōhoku's Iwate Prefecture.

A frightening prospect that would be.

Warning:  this is sad.

A scientist was washed off Pedra Branca, an island off the south coast of Tassie, in 2003.  He was 40 meters above sea level, sheltering in the saddle you can see in the photo, I believe.

Hibernated and kept the boat drinks flowing, wait, the boat drinks always flow here.  Really looking forward to watching some actual SAILBOAT RACING!  Been re-paneling my office and trimming out windows I replaced a year and a half ago, have taken down 15 trees this winter, finished that up too.

Should have done a 1000 km and delayed your whining by another couple of days.

I could heavily verbally abuse you, but you know it wouldn’t be genuine. Im down today because of no racing. I haven’t the enthusiasm to be nasty to anyone at the moment. Yet I know we in NZ have suffered next to no lockdowns compared to anyone else in the world. So I guess I should keep my whiny mouth shut.

Nope, just have a lot of trees on our property that have grown in the last 45 years since the house was built, opening the view to the water and getting light in the backyard.  The previous owners had not done any clean up for a long time, bought as is but have waterfront with a view across the Straits of Juan de Fuca from our little island to the Olympic Peninsula.  Livee in the NW corner of America.

Pray tell more? Am considering taking an early retirement and that’s exactly to the T the situation and view I’d want most... edit: it is what Basiliscus retired to, but from Whidbey Island.

On Davis Bay, Lopez Island outside Cattle Pass.  Look across Mummy Rocks and Whale Rocks to Sequim and PA.  Spectacular, the view changes all the time.  We face south.  The water is always moving, it has been blowing a hoolie up here the last few days, like being on the ocean, totally different than being inside the islands on the water.

Lots of good firewood and been giving some away to friends and neghbors who need it.  Milled some for the house repairs a year and a half ago.  Had a really nice spruce log and wondered if Tallyho could use it for a bow sprit.

Sweet, damn... 

The west coast of Orcas Island looked gorgeous last time I got to sail by one afternoon, but it may be above my target budget.

Great idea. Give, Leo a call. I'm sure he could use it.
