Been living in Cape Town now for just on 12 years and believe me I have not experienced such a hot summer as what we are going through at the moment. Everything is getting scorched. It has become a major battle to save the gardens with water restrictions in place.

Prelude to hot day.Start of a hot day

Those clouds soon disappeared leaving us to the mercy of the son and a near storm strength Southeaster blowing, but not bringing any relief in the low 30sC (high 82F).  Yesterday was a true killer 36C (96.8F) sapping every iota of energy from the body.

Enjoy the start of the new week, we will survive.
