Edge of the world

Right now there is a storm rolling in and one side of the office the sun is streaming into the office and on the other side there is a blanket of rain covering the usual view of mountains and fields of sheep. The air is dead still.

I wish I had my camera as the evidence would make this post 1000 time better… the contrast between the sun lighting up the trees in front of the storm is stunning and a little bit comical actually because it appears that Queenstown no longer exists; the storm has eaten up the west coast of the South Island and won’t stop until it hits the east coast.

It actually looks like the country stops about half a km from where I work; that if you got to that point you’d just drop off. There’d be no obvious cliff, no hint that you were going to drop off any time soon, you’d just get there and disappear. Into oblivion. Being a Monday and working at a job I don’t love, that might be quite nice… I’ll settle for a massive storm – they’re always exciting. I’ll run to the window like the kids do at school when it hails, it’ll be mayhem! Kind of…not really. But similar.
