What next?

So far this year we’ve had floods, severe snow storms, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake followed by hundreds of aftershocks,  kiwifruit canker and a fatal explosion in a coal mine.

That’s more than enough but now a mystery disease is killing off oysters and forecasts of a  La Niña summer are heralding drought.

What next – a plague of locusts?

    How about those jellyfish swarms that devastated the Big Glory Bay salmon farms?
    It least we’ll be able to rid ourselves of fireblight by exporting it to Australia.
