Since Saturday weather is proving expectations wrong. We knew that winter in Jo’burg can be chilly, after all we are at almost 1800 m above sea level. But we were told that there was only blue skies in winter, so that during the day temperature would be rather convenient.
This was true until last Friday, chilly in the morning and at night, but still more than 20 degrees Celsius during the day. Since then covered skies, and quite some rain.
So we need to buy fire wood – wondering whether the fireplace in our master bedroom is good for more than romantic moments. And need to check what heater to buy – electric oil radiator, electric fan, or gas heater – since we have no heating at all.
