It is that pic of yours that triggered me to check what is going on in the Indian Ocean Basin! The earlier one.

Ai shame ja the Pretoria roads are suffering. Feel sorry for the uber eats bikes, saw one that fell because of a massive hole on the downhill with no street lights annihalated a poor uber eats bike front wheel and also another cars rims. So be on the lookout in the left lane near the robots going toward woodland direction on de villebois road.

Also what the hell happened there at tiger wheel and tyre?? Caught me by suprise!

Two accidents on my way, christmas lights galore.

First one at Sasol Lyttelton Manor.

Second one at McDonalds Waterkloof.

People don't take the wet roads into consideration, and try to push their luck at traffic lights and intersections.

Wet over the Kalahari too:

The forecast earlier showed rain over the Namibia/Botswana border:

F@k mense. When am I supposed to do laundry. I love this weather maar jirre...I need clean and dry clothes too. Think will have to get garden chairs out and hang on them with fan on full and pray by the time the cleaning lady comes again Tuesday I have them somewhat dry to iron.

This rain is asking though. Love it.

I'm loving the rain too but it needs to move more to the Vaal catchment areas.

Last year was on the low side bit probably not abnormally low. This year is on the high side but not abnormally so.

Check this link and see what you think.

The other site to look at to get a feel for how we are doing this year compared other years is this one:
753434


Based on the above, we have absolutely nothing to complain about in Gauteng.
