The wind in Kylemore (outside Stellenbosch) has been crazy and it is not stopping. Uprooted and broken trees everywhere. We were without power for a day as Eskom techs are battling to restore broken lines.

Is Cape Town still there on the west coast or has it blown eastwards?

Reminds me of the folk living out Kraaifontein/Parow or Strand way saying they live in C.T.

Not in my books! :D Heaven forbid.

Off topic, but all part of Greater Cape Town, an administrative region that includes Steenbras Dam, but excludes Stellenvbosch.

Then even Belville should be excluded...go to Belville and CY (see why) as the saying goes.
Fine in my books.
Belleville is only 20km from the CBD, while Simonstown is 40km.

Edit: This is a rainfall thread, and there is a bigger difference between the CBD and Newlands, than there is between the CBD and The Strand.

Just checked the weekly report from CoCT, TWK had approx 90mm of rain over last 3 days, I would hv expected an uplift, but nothing...

Thunderbolts and lightning - very, very frightening in PE!

Coming down in buckets at the moment. Thanks to the Cape Town winds a day or so ago. :cool:

Some rain in the Karoo but very patchy. The places that did get rain got plenty, as high as 130 mm, other places got less than 10 mm.
