Good morning here it is another wonderful hot Wednesday morning here in New Zealand. We had breakfast outside this morning and it was very hot and 8.15am in the morning. My team mate Deanne said that it was snowing last week at 17 I thought that was unusual for that temperature then I reread her note again it was (-17) now I know why it was snowing and so cold. I don't think I've ever experienced that temperature in my life.
With a large earth quake in early October and hundreds upon hundreds of aftershocks it couldn't get any worse for people in the South Island. If you've seen any news in your part of the world you would have seen that we have 29 Coal Miners trapped 2.5km under ground they have been trapped since last Friday. The rescuers haven't gone in as yet because it's too dangerous and they are worried about the Carbon dioxide and Methane Gases At 2.37pm this afternoon there was another large blast caused by Carbon dioxide and Methane Gas build up again in the tunnel and now they presume that all 29 men that were trapped in the tunnel have been killed. My prayers and thoughts go out to their families and friends the youngest of the men was only 17 years old.
