Cape Town has a proper winter again!

Cape Town has a proper winter again!
The weather in Cape Town over the last week has been like the 'winters of old'. Gone are the warm, dry winters that have lead to our prolonged drought over the last four years and back in the swing are the blustery, hard rain, cold days of yore.

There's even snow on the mountains most notably actually on the road (the N2) that crosses Sir Lowry's Pass (the former border of the Cape Colony in the early years) and flooding in Sea Point.

And whilst all this can only be good for the dam levels in the Western Cape, spare a thought for those still living in informal settlements (slums) in the Cape's towns, who are literally rebuilding their houses on a weekly basis whilst trying to stay warm and dry in between.
