This started life as a weblog for those living in the Avonside area of Christchurch in 2011 & 2012, and for anyone else looking for information or news on earthquake assessment, rebuilding, and related matters.
Now it operates intermittently as and when it would be useful to comment on events or issues relevant to Avonside or the way New Zealand handles disasters and insurance.
