Yep! indeed..... I have a mate who is a dentist and a herb/plant type and he came back home recently, He enjoys walks in the desert int he early morning and sent me snaps , he was pretty excited at finding new life in the desert after the rains.....

The snails came out from under the ground in search of food....

The dry pan to the South of the town also started to fill again, this is an important wetland for birds and has been in dire straits due to the drought!

Forgive me for posting , but thought some of you weather Fundi's might find it of interest.... :)
It's always interesting to see whats happening regarding weather in the region, in the years to come I'll definitely be looking back at these Wx threads, who knows, 20 years from now they could give some researchers some good qualitative data

I think their historical and accurate weather data records will be more resourceful than a thread on MyBB :p

This is why you should have an indoor braai - you keep warm and you feed yourself
We all have an indoor braai --- it is called a stove and a grid pan.

No, a braai is something intangible and a total experience, not just about the source of heat to burn (er cook) the meat.
