a deathly silence....
Two weeks, two whole weeks of nadda, nicks, not a sniff,
not even the shuffle of a leaf… a deathly silence in a normally windy city
and all this in winter. And slap in the middle of winter at that.
Becalmed would be the best way of describing the last two weeks
and in all my time here I can’t quite rememmber a stretch that was this long
without rain in the middle of winter.
I’m afraid theres only so much powered flight I can do before getting
into a rather bad mood. Sorry cat!
Post solstice is generally for us the real winter set in and usually runs through
to end September with a good old dollop of the wet stuff falling from grey skies.
Not so this year. Sweltering temperatures of 28 Degreees last Saturday
had me grabbing at my mankini, only to find the pool had not quite caught up
on that just yet and was holding a rather cooler 17 degree level.
So sadly, mankini back in the cupboard for the time being.
Lets hope this weekend starts to deliver a bit better as a good old South Easter…
right in the middle of winter… promises to follow a wee bit of the wet stuff on Friday.
The first wet stuff in 3 weeks. Not good for those water levels.
In the meantime lets have a squint at the beautiful sat pics from CSAG at UCT
while we wait for the rain… and the bleeding North Westers.
