Rain clouds approaching and we did get some rain, albeit far less than what we wanted, only 7mm (.25 inches).

Level 4b water restrictions remain in place in Cape Town. That means we must try to use less than 87 liters (23 US gallons or 19 imperial gallons) per person per day. Thanks to the drought water is no longer a commodity, it has become precious.

Enjoy the evening.


Water, more precious than gold.

The drought is really hitting us hard and we are under strict water restrictions pertaining to the use of municipal potable water like no washing of cars and gardens may only be watered by watering can or bucket for one hour on two days of the week and this must be done before 9 am or after 6pm.

This is what our lawn looks like at the moment.

They say we only have enough water at current use for 93 days left in the dams, but by then our rain season should hopefully be in full swing.

Enjoy the day.
