Wow! Must have been a great night if you guys are posting in the wee small hours.

Me? I'm up at 6am to lift a VF cabinet to the roof of a building at Lincoln - strong wind warnings - not bloody likely today!!?!

Which means tomorrow - hopefully hung-over. Can you be done for DIC of a crane?

Looks like we've turned on the weather for the visitors as well, it's snowing out here in Leeston now, so I assume the city will be getting it in about 30 mintues if not already.. :-)

That walk to the Grail is looking a little chilly!
