Serious Rain on the East Coast.
« on: October 20, 2012, 17:53:06 »
I am in Port Alfred, and excessive rain is falling, to an extend not seen for a long time.
It is pouring again, after a short break. We are safe high above ground, next to the sea, but I think many others have big prroblems.
Our water supply is off, but we still enjoy the Sharks, drowning the Bulls.
Hope our friends in P.E. and East London area are safe.
Watch the News tonight.

Stay safe and enjoy your trip. Dis  maar stil en treurig hier in Pretoria noudat die Bulle verdrink het.

Please Stef, send just a little bit of rain to your hometown; still very dry in Bloemfontein.
Hope the weather clears in Port Alfred so that you can visit some Clivia Nurseries nearby!
Enjoy the holiday...

Stef I am glad to know that you have not washed away. Yesterday I went to Polokawne via Groblersdal to my brother on the farm 25 km from Zebedelea and the hail lay thick on the side of the road and all the leaves were striped of the trees from the hail the trees looked so strange with no leaves on with the start of summer. I past a village before Groblersdal on the R25 and at the bottom of the valley the road was closed as the river bust its banks in the valley and was flood and the bridge was under water. I had to turn around and want to go back home but thanks to the GPS I got to the farm safely without turning to far back. But I do not think I will go back the same route as I do not know if the road and bridge is still there and that river runs into Loskop dam.
I will be going back via the N1. You have a safe trip back to Bloem.
Regard Frits

Hope Bloemfontein will get rain soon.
Our biggest problem: No Braai for the first two evenings on holiday, I start feeling like a junkie without dope.
Groete.

We had some serious rain today as well as hail. In Boksburg the hailstones were the size of golfballs but apparently in Germiston they had some tennisball size. Yesterday i had hail out here my way but it was small so no damage here.

Stef when we were appies we had a cycle challenge from Benoni to Durbs for charity purposes. We stayed in the Malibu Hotel on our arrival. We were thrown out of the hotel because some students had a braai in the passage of the hotel on the fifth floor. When our training manager proved it was not us we were allowed back in and the students thrown out.

Watch those braais as they can get you into serious trouble.

Enjoy the holiday and stay safe.

Kind regards
Eddie
A lot of people's biggest regret when they pass away one day, is that they when they had the time, was too reluctant to tell the people that was important to them, how much they apreciated them

It's still raining down here Stef, I went bivvie camping last night hoping to see the meteor shower, just got home after being rained on all night. This rain looks set in for a while still.

Michael, our rain will stop 11h00 today, with about 2mm per day for the coming week.
Till now PA had 300mm>.
Wish I could take some with.
Maria, you have a good idea of a nice braai.
Time you come see how we do it.
Eddie, please melt the hail, and save the water.
