GREETINGS FROM SOUTH AFRICA!
Hello there everybody,
Over the last 24 hours a cold front has gripped the eastern part of our country, leaving national highways closed and people stranded. It's one of the heaviest snowfalls here in South Africa since the 1990's. Temperatures tonight are likely to fall well below zero in many parts of the country. We'll all have to wrap up warm.
Here in Johannesburg, the skies are partly cloudy - fluffy puffs of white against a bright blue sky. Thankfully we're not quite as cold as some places in the country. But the weather is really strange. Take a look at the sunrise yesterday...I've never seen a sunrise this colour before:
Somehow these weather conditions always go along with aggravating circumstances. Our metal workers have been on strike for a number of weeks, leaving filling stations dry and motorists frustrated. There are gas shortages too, which means that our own heaters in the house stand idle. I took a trip to at least four outlets this morning, but to no avail. We're in for a cold night.
The good news though, is that my flu has eased. Hopefully I'll soon be as good as new again.
The dogs are wondering what is happening...no walks?
Just thinking about a walk has Toby on his feet:
Patience, dogs, patience!
That's all my news for the moment, except that our resident weaver bird has read the weather all wrong. He thinks it's nesting season:
Then again, perhaps he's built it for himself.
Since I don't have much news, please can I divert your attention to
a very sweet and fairly new blogger on the block.
A little spaniel called STELLA
She really is a sweety-pie and I know she'd appreciate a few more visitors and followers.
How about going to say hello?
