60mm Frozen H20
Bugger, that was rough!In moved a classic Cape winter storm, said an opening thunderstorm howzit
on Friday evening as a few of us gathered up on Chappies for an evening
session that was awesome. A Black Eagle visited us real low on the hillside
and was just beautiful to watch.
We right into the teeth of the gathering gale
that developed an attitude ,hung around for two days solid, and threw water
at us at gigantic levels. Hout bay measured in at 60mm,
Kirstenbosch in at 80mm. Throw in a bit of hail, Cape Town central
taking the prize with a hail storm of note that made it look like
a winter wonderland.
In the end all good news as we needed the rain and a bunch of TOSSers
got a bunch of building done across the board as the Black Eagle PSS
closes in on us. Last call for entries is this week.
A nice afternoon into evening session up at Chapmans Peak
An incredible view of a Black Eagle with crows in tow

and then some hail….
and out in Greyton, some snow. A warm welcome to winter
