    I wouldn't count on snow, we are likely to get sleet like we did a few years ago, it is snow but not enough to actually make a layer.

    Remember '81 clearly. Staying in Hillbrow, working Mayfair. We couldn't get back up the hill in our Beetle. Merle moving wipers by hand out the window, 10m up, 5m down

    In '81 we were in the Eastern Freestate. That was proper snow. The N3 was closed, people were stranded and the whole town opened their homes to travelers who had nowhere to go. Some injured due to car accidents, there was no evacuation to hospitals or anything, everyone just stuck together and made do. The tannies made soup. Lots.
