|Fitting the solar panels and building the fence|
|Finally the sun came out!|
|The finished site|
The rain finally eased up and the wind decided to add to the fun! So running after stray equipment and cement bags as well as trying to keep the tarpaulins over our gear was amusing.
Unfortunately due to the bad weather all week it wasn't possible to completely finish the site, so a couple of technicians are heading back out next week to wire up the solar panels and the vault to the cabinet. And install the strong and weak-motion instruments, that will do all of the earthquake recording!
A more detailed story on the site build will be in the next issue of the GeoNet News, including the science involved and how the site was chosen.

|FINISHED! We did think about GNS but decided YMCA was easier!|
