We had a massive cold front this past week, no load shedding, shall we add loot, riot and burn to the list?
Indeed – was quite surprised.

If we had better economic growth we would have had worse load-shedding. Thankfully the ANC had the foresight to **** up the economy and relieve the load-shedding burden.

Like telling a sufferer of ingrown toenails the good news of being cured of that problem, because they just lost both legs in a car accident.

I think it's winning, I've managed to avoid a lot of driving as well... But I'm not one of those who couldn't work from home, or lost their jobs.
