    Myself also, I have a pair of Khombu boots, usually reserved for extreme Lesotho, but they are on this winter

    Yep and good rains are forecast for the Cape winelands. Apparently there could be flooding in some areas, so take care out there tomorrow.

    Pretoria was not nearly as cold yesterday and today as predicted. I was looking forward to my thick winter woolies

    I honestly hope for good rains in the Cape.

    Gewoonlik is die mooi in die suide waar die sneeu en berge is!

    Die koue kom dan soos 'n spook op die wind in die binneland aan!

    Vra enige troep wat op Potch was, hierdie plek word p!$koud!

    I saw a post on Facebook of -21 with wind chill in the Queenstown area.

    I am heading fishing there next week, going to have to take a bigger hip flask and add two teaspoons of cement.
