What's the weather like over there?


Recommended Posts

Not to trivialize your plight, Theuns, but I thought that a little joke might add a bit of levity in this situation.

knock knock!

Who's there?

Ash

Ash who?

Gesundheit!

I'm relieved to know that you are all out of danger now!

Westwind and sunny. There was something red in the top of one of my pear trees two days ago. Using a pole I removed it and it was a deflated balloon from a balloon release/race. Sender was a 8 year ol

A bola would probably end with me strangled. Never used one. Our cow dog can now catch a frisbee in 8 feet height. Perhaps a bit more training and a sausage for each multicopter ? Or he could track

We had 2 storm days with ice and hail this week. But today at easter sunday morning: swallows are back, first butterflies fly around and most important: The holy easter ants left their underground wi

The fire is now completely put out. the mountain has lots of black scars and there is still a lot of smoke in the sky. I am just glad that the fire is not burning anymore...

 

Thank you all for the well wishes and support

I certainly hope that all is back to normal for you and the residents of your town and I imagine the job of getting rid of all the ash has been an odious chore. I would wager that it found its way into the smallest and tightest of places and cleaning it inside homes and businesses such as your restaurant has been a real nightmare. Best wishes, Theuns!

A day without TV and Internet...

Heavy storm day. Antenna for internet access to Access Point down in village, antenna for TV satellites all swinging happily. 

noooooooooooooooooooo that is awful Chattius!

But... you're so lucky that it's almost in your bones that you and your family are a part of the out doors... is it really bad storming like hail and rain, or snow thats actually kind of fun to look at and perhaps ski in?

Hoping that your net and tv comes back soon...uprising have happened for less

:sun:

Allowed only x-Country skiining in the open for the Kids. Forest streets were and are still too dangerous. We got heavy snow at a just below freezing temperature in evening. So the snow load on some trees was too high together with the storm. Busy with chain saw between 5am and 6am to free the downhill road.

Well it’s windy. We’re still stuck in London since all flights yesterday got cancelled, our first rebooked flight got cancelled, and now our second flight has a delay as well.

:dntknw:

Jolly good times I say chaps. 

 

Update: it’s been some time now but we’re still sitting in the plane on the runway in London...

Well, the cold very quickly came this way... 

It feels like autumn was to shy to even show its's face... we went from HOT to cold in a matter of a few days... I know it is probably going to get colder still, I know that this is just the beginning... but WHY? I am not ready for the cold yet... I want sunshine and daisies and butter mellow... and you don't even have to turn a stupid fat rat yellow...

Just hearing about all the snow activities is thrilling

We have leftover piles of hard snow...this is the dirty crusty stuff that never seems to leave and leaves behind piles of salt and dirty mittens :lol: ,,,, when this stuff's all cleared spring is here, and we can just walk/hike up to the mountain behind us!

Yes, just a few weeks ago, it was still nice and hot, I could walk around the house in shorts, with out a shirt, and I was at a great temperature... that is why I want summer.

Yes it does snow here, but only on the coldest days, and only high on the mountain tops where I can't get to to touch the snow... so I have "seen"snow, just very far away. and then the Valley feels like it freezes, all the cold air rushing down from 3 sides...

I have hafd a bit of a shock. 

Coming to Namibia to visit family of my Fiance. I thought it might be a bit warmer than Franschhoek. I have been wearing shorts, Tshirt and slip-on-sandals the entire time. But I fid not expect it to be like a second summer time... I am loving it.... Alex not so much, he loves the cold, and coming back from the Bahamas, he wanted the late Autumn/beginning winter weather... 

 

Spending time with his family and meeting people that knew him from a younger age has been interesting. 

 

I do not have pictures of the "weather" outside. But I will try and take a picture or two tomorrow...

 

Hope you all have pleasant weather!?

Its been quite sunny and hot here in MTL... finally! And "cool' to hear that that the weather's been hot there as well.  I spent some time looking up more info about Namibia online... that land scape is just so drop dead gorgeous...  and so un populated.. Montreal's population is almost two million... lol close to Namibia's? :o 

Is that country's population so low because of lack of rain?

:)
