The forecast said rain and this what we got!

No rain

Enjoy the start of the new week.


First of all I want to thank Melody of the Donkey Whisperer Farm for having nominated me for the WordPress Family Award.  Yes I really feel like a member of a great family.  Then I must appologise I just cannot select who I think are my ten most favourite bloggers as I enjoy all the blogs with equal keenness.  Anyway, to get to the title of this post “Winter”.  Yes, it has arrived in Cape Town.  It is cold and wet and if the forecast is correct it will remain like that for the rest of the week including the coming weekend  which may be quite stormy.

Still ample rain to comec Storm clouds 1

Have a super day.

If there is a topic topping the list in South Africa today it is the weather.  Everybody caught off guard by an extreme cold snap.  For years prediction of the weather held my attention and so much so that that I have ventured into prophesizing the “tomorrow’s” weather on a daily basis.  Not only do I make comparisons between all the predictions, I also then make my own.

The rain is over

Using other external tools such as recorded temperatures, humidity and wind direction, the clarity of the mountains or the haze that engulfs the mountains are all tools I use in my predictions.  Without blowing my own trumpet I can humbly admit that I am extremely consistent in failing every prediction I make.  Now I wonder is that the professional meteorologist’s daily fear?

There will be rain tomorrow

Oh well, the reality is that they say a second cold front should hit us this coming weekend and then hopefully winter will consider to start standing aside for spring’s entrance.  Hopeful, am I not.  Have a great day.
