Winter in S A this year started in March and is still ongoing.- it is colder than ever in the past 50 years and winds are stronger. Laat week large parts of SA was under snow. and I am sure that was the time when the storm you referred to occurred,
It is already September and one expect moderate Spring weather and not intense winter situations.
I suppose the brainwashed will call all that the result of Global warming and resultant rising sea levels - but it has nothing to do with that explanation.- many people is asking when is winter going to end this year in SA and the answer is not clear, There were even ground level snow in Namibia - have you ever heard of that before?
