Heavy rain in PTA East.
It was pretty heavy. Started (in Muckleneuk - called 'Brooklyn' or Waterkloof by property developers!) on the 13th at 4pm: my wife calls that "Government rain", as it used to wet public servants as they went home. Thunder pretty continuous and plenty of rain during the night back home in Pretoria East, and started again around 0900 today (Sunday). This is what I call 'British rain' - steady, fairly heavy, no thunderstorms, evenly overcast clouds. The best sort as it does not simply run off into storm drains, but soaks in.

And we have literally just done some more waterproofing to our garage roof and kitchen skylight :confused:
Nothing like a really good test! Good luck with it.
Just got back from Bela Bela. Only just north of Gauteng, about 100kms from Pretoria. We had a minute of rain in 5 days. You could see the surroundings going greener as we headed back this am. Really as dry as dust.
