-- Beg my god to speak and tear me apart

(no subject)

Went in to get my flu jab today and on the way home we drove through town and I got to see Colombo Street at the cordon for the first time.

Oh.

Wow.

It's... not good. It's really really not good. For the first time since the earthquake this shit is actually starting to sink in for me. Our city is so very fucked. All bricks and cracks and streets we can't go down. The video on this page is really upsetting.

I read that they're hoping to open up the central city again by the end of October. I'm not sure how anyone can think this is back to normal when we can't even get into the CBD for another seven months.
