To be honest, it is quite amazing to see some snow, again.
Taken at the Johannesburg Zoo
Last year we had some quite severe snow storms, which amazed many of us South Africans. Today a record has been set in which every province of South
Africa had snow on the same day.
I understand that to many it is not "news worthy", as it is just snow. But, this does not happen in S.A where it snows in every single province. It
does not even occur annually. But i took in account other strange weather and happenings that did occur, like NZ volcano, Poland being hit by a
tornado and of course the Manila issue. The weather is just getting stranger and stranger. But, we will always have the naysayers
I don't doubt climate change anymore (never did) AT ALL! By the by, we do get snow every year in the Drakensberg, so i am not saying we never get
snow. Though, in Johannesburg we had major snow in 1981, a smaller storm in 2007 and in 2011 it hit quite hard in Kwazulu Natal and not too hard in
Johannesburg. Today took us all by a kind surprise.
Some photos i took today. (Any other Saffers please share yours, too!)
In Natal there are some severe snow storms and road closures.
