It's pouring.... I'm wearing damp overalls to work. The fan did not manage to dry them between the loadshedding times :cautious:

Kinda hoped the Vaal would have recovered a bit for all this wetness but it seems to be dropping at the usual pace. Guess it ain't falling down in that catchment area or its being sent downstream.

It is falling in the catchment area but water takes 2 weeks to reach the dam.

First sign of big water on the unconfirmed measurements page today.

Hope it is accurate

The rain can go to drought areas and give these a good soak rather.

Anybody got the latest satellite images?

we complained about no rain, then it all started coming in one big batch.
