When it rains bad in Taupo we get pumice all over the grass when the soak hole fills up.

If thats your car....maybe move it? i thought you was on a hill? or slope?

Not liquifaction this far North in Nelson, we are on a hill our garden goes up behind us. Not my car Beetle the neighbours, they just moved it so the council can dig the road up which is happening now in the rain, oh and they turned our water off while it's happening. Talked to the guys and they reckon we should have water again by8.30 so have had to leave dishes in the sink which I hate doing much prefer to do them straight away

Well at least they on to it, and not have a ghastly hole appear and then do some hand wringing afterwards and then think "Oh my gosh what shall we do?"

Nelson obviously has not had enough rain...and flooding...:(

So you dont have a dishwasher? :D or is that you.............:p

We do have a dishwasher but I always wash the big post by hand, they only on to it because I rang them and told them it was urgent. No we obviously need more rain. Still gives me an excuse to stay in tomorrow and work on computer stuff and sort things like my CV since I have to start job hunting at the end of the month
