Cheers, K.
The storm yesterday never reached us. Relatives on a farm in the Karoo got really soaked. 28 mm fell in less than 30 minutes. In that part of the World that sort of down pour causes real chaos with plenty of run off, mud and slush.

A few weeks ago they had to abandon their vehicle in a field and walk in the dark, 8 km to get home because a small dam had burst and flooded the road. So this rainy season is trouble for everyone all over the country.

Yip has been building for the last hour here in Sandton.

Looks like it may be moving slightly to the North West; so hopefully we will miss the worst of it. It is raining here at the moment and looks heavier still down towards MC in the valley.
Cheers, K

Yup we ended up with getting 11mm of rain and one almighty lightning strike that shook the foundations of my home! Scared the living daylights out of us as it was not preceded by any warning rumblings or build up. No signal drop outs on the decoders.

Halleluja. Woke up this morning to the sound of gentle rain here in Cape Town. Rain that is sorely needed. Than about thirty minutes ago lightning and thunder followed by some heavy rain. Still ongoing. Unfortunately I don't have a rain gauge so won't be able to tell how much water has fallen but it has been a fair amount. Still need lots and LOTS more but hopefully this is the start.

Great news indeed! Hoping for MUCH more.

Big storm?

Likewise, must be in that distant land called Pretoria that's a whole massive 50km away
Last night was unseasonally cold here.
Crazy how the weather works these days.

I did see MC made mention of expected storms country wide this weekend, in an article about other options in poor weather at dstv.com.

Yes I have noticed. The days are nice sometimes really warm then the late evening comes around and it's freezing
