|Rangitoto Island, Auckland, New Zealand view from Mission Bay|
I should also mention this is a live volcano that is in our very midsts, a slumbering destructor of worlds. I really should not have watched that drama programme they made about it last year ( in an effort I think to scare us into preperation for WHEN it erupts - thats WHEN not IF)....have you got your survival kit ready Auckland?? Have you too noticed the alarming number of 'Are you prepared' ads recently, like they know something. I've got some loo roll, tinned food and candles in a box . I'm not really sure I have anything in there that will deal with lava and ash. Note to self - watch more Bear Grylls programmes.
