HELLO NEW DAY!
WILDEARTH'S DJUMA Cam Discussion Monday , May 21st
Night Penny, lekker slaap! :)
Eish Ingwe - it snows every year on the Maluti Mountains and the mountains in the Cape and in Lesotho and in the Drakensberg - we only had snow once in Durban about 22 years ago but as we are on the Coast it is just a tad too warm here. You must have got off lightly then doll! Take care - BTW lots to tell you so will e mail you tomorrow!
'Night Penny. Keep warm!
Good night everyone - sorry I cannot say happy camming but hopefully it will be sorted out soon. I am off to snuggle up in bed and watch some TV! Take care and we will I am sure meet again at the next drive!
Wile1, I lived in SA for 20 years and it snowed twice. Once was in the spring in September, and the second time was in June. We had no heat in our houses other than free standing electric heaters that we purchased. It's cold in winter even without the snow, we heated one room and had electric blankets :wink:
The houses are typically built north facing so that all the living areas get the most sunlight during the day, often it would be warmer outside than inside. :shock:
With the weird weather Africa is having, I wonder if it will effect this hurricane season. Don't the hurricanes that hit the east & gulf coasts of the U.S. usually start off as weather systems coming from Africa?
Yes, take care. If there's adequate food in the larder, the best thing to do is just to hole up and wait it out.
Penny it amazes me to think that it would be that cold in SA... I grew up in the 50's and always believed africa to be jungle like and hot. Of course I have come to realize it is a huge contenint and probably has all sorts of weather. But snow?
I guess my question would be is that a routine thing? I mean does it happen often?
The weather all over the globe has been a bit wonky this past year. Here where I live we had some 80 degree temps in the middle of winter. That is very unusual for us. Our snow fall is way below normal also. I doubt we had over 6 inches of snow all winter and we usually have around 30 or 40 inches during the winter. The lack of snow and rain here has put us at near drought conditions. And its just getting warmer. We had 90's in spring and normal temps are in the 60's.
Right now its pretty normal for this time of year. Days in the 70's nights in the upper 40's to low 50's, but its very dry not much rain.
I hope this cold doesn't last for you. I can't imagine it lasting a long time. It could be very bad for not only people and the power, but for the plants and animals as well.
After seeing the wind yesterday at Nkohro blowing I wondered if it wasn't blowing in a cold front. It reminded me of how it happens here.
Take care all of you over there. :)
They are, indeed, working on it. They're looking for servers throughout the world to divide their bankdwidth up, as I understand it, which I don't. Computer illiterate.
@ Ingwe - lol doll at least you can vouch for how cold it gets in sunny SA!!
Lol, this is the first time since I got here, that I don't want to be there :wink: Unless you have a cheetah from me to snuggle :lol:
Bottlenose, I haven't had a lot of luck getting onto the drives either.
