It never rains in South Africa

Monday, 26. July 2010

Yes, I know the old Albert Hammond song title is “It never rains in Southern California” , and it wasn’t about never raining there (actually it sings “it seems, it never rains in …”), and in the chorus Hammond singsĀ  “It never rains in California, but girl don’t they warn ya. It pours, man it pours.”

So in South Africa, where we have our storms every day in summer, but in winter time usually it doesn’t rain at all. This afternoon all collegues got nervous. Pointing at the sky they either said, “You can’t go now, you will get all wet ’till you reach the car” or “You need to go now now, since it will be pouring with rain, and traffic will be a nightmare”.
And indeed the sky looked even more as if there was a snowfront with heavy snowfall to expect. But over the last couple of days it has become pretty warm. And finally there was no rain at all.
No drop of rain for four months now!
