Itty-bitty hail for a couple minutes and now some light rain and moderate wind in Weltevredenpark. Just missed it on the way home.

something big brewing in garsfontein...
Yeah and it came out of nowhere! I saw the winds picking up a bit as I drove home. Went into Spar with my little list (that grew with each Whatsapp ping that came through).

By the time I got to the tills it was coming down "Katte en honde" as my mom always said.

And as luck would have it I parked in the furthest corner because I suspected nothing.

The weather this morning said nothing for us. The weather at lunch time said a possibility with worst east of us. The radar predictions first said storms were moving east and would just catch the south of JHB. Within minutes the direction changed and the storms moved north with a vengeance. Walked to the shops with a small list for the wife. Just made it home before it started and we are being soaked!

Took R82 home, then got hit by the storm on the way. Very very bad road to drive on when it pisses down hard.
