Default Snow in Johannesburg

Yup, it snowed last night and this morning. It wasn't much (only about
an inch at most), but considering that the last time it snowed here
was 10 September1981, it's quitye a momentous occasion.

It's freezing cold at the moment, and the weatherman is predicting
even colder temps tonight.

If you're coming to Joburg in the next few weeks, bring some warm
clothing. :-) We're generally not prepared for the cold here.

Marc, I saw it on the news this morning. Must be great for the kids who
have just gotten their holidays. I am flying south tomorrow, so I'll
pack an extra sweater. Even though I am used to it and won't call this
really cold, it will still feel chilly. Luckily I do not intend to stay
very long in Jo'burg and head straight for Kruger. Hope it is warmer
there. :-)

Regards,
Hans

Seems to be across the hemisphere; we have snow here today
in areas of NSW that rarely see it.


Cheers, Alan, Australia

+15�C only today in Munich (+11�C in the morning) - relatively cold for
this time of the year. Maybe the beginning of a new glacial age?

27 in Skukuza today Hans, we had 26 today. So this area is quite warm for
the winter at this moment.

Have a good journey!

A new glacial age? Maybe so, according to Dennis Quaid I liked that
movie, the Day after tommorrow.

Just got home again after travelling for 28 hours...... :-(
And Air France managed to loose our bagage on the flight to South Africa
as well as on the return trip! Bunch of %#$%#$%%##!!!!

I'll write more about the trip later. I am just too tired now.
We had rains for three days in a row in Kruger. The first two days
(Letaba) were moderate but raining nearly al day. The last day of the
rains (while staying in Sirheni) they were absolutely HUGE (and the roof
leaking). I have never seen the north of kruger (all those 88 million
boring Mopane trees :-) so green this time of year. .-)

Evenings, nights and mornings were freezingly cold. Even with 4
blankets. The last week in the south (Biyamiti) was very nice and warm.

Regards,
Hans
