Hi Friends

Our power might be affected soon...

Here is an update on our extreme weather in Sedgefield and surrounding areas

Lookforit Newspaper Knysna
8 hours ago via mobile
4am and Knysna, Sedgefield and the entire Garden Route is tortured by extreme weather. Gale force wind and heavy rain is experienced throughout. We received reports from readers in Knysna describing the storm as a "hurricane" on the Eastern Heads. In Sedgefield, the storm is also extreme. Power outages in Mossel Bay. Rescue services on high alert as flooding is a big possibility. Flood alert issued!

Algoa FM
The N2 is closed between Wilderness and Knysna due to flooding - there are traffic officers directing traffic. Please be patient and aware of other drivers on the road.

Knysna FM
‎6:00am: Big Storm still raging outside. Gale force wind is back. Knysna Marathon cancelled due to flooding and safety concerns. This is hectic! Friends houses are flooded! Power out in areas. Trees blocking roads.


Snow on the Outeniqua Pass which has been closed now for traffic due to hailstorms and very slippery conditions.

I`m here sitting and packing seeds. The wind is still very strong and they have closed many roads including the N2 to George.
Thanks to all. Just wondering and worrying about my flowers outside, but just dont have the guts to go out there just yet.

Carrie :(

Hi Carrie.

Hope you are well and safe. Hope the storm damage will miss your family and plants.

Kind regards

Stay safe Jan. Still very bad here. Very strong winds and lashing rain.
Giovanni could not come through from Oudsthoorn as the pass was closed. Will see about tomorrow. I have unpacked the plants and keeping them damp and safe.

I think the worst is over for us in the Southern Cape. Still very cold and windy, but the rain has  decreased. Lots of flood damage everywhere, but we have come off lightly. Only Big branches and lots of leaf litter everywhere. Plants have been blown over, but no major damage to clivias or green houses.
Now to keep an eye out for rootrot. Everything is just so very very wet.

thanks to all for the wishes.

Carrie

Thanks. What a relief, I lost internet connection due to the storms. Luckily very little damage. Some residence of our community was not so lucky.
Regards.

After the storm, the sun will shine. :) :) :)

Me, my family and community are still recovering from that bad storm that hit us last week.
It was hard for the first day or two.
After that and things are clearing up, one realizes how we are still so blessed.
Be safe and keep faith!
We are blessed for only one reason...to share.
