Snow day!7 August , 2012
It’s snowing in Jhb! (okay, at first it was just sleeting but then there was proper snowing after that). Keeping in mind that you guys wanted more up to date photos with your posts I took PLENTY, but now my battery is too flat to upload unfortunately. I will only be able to post them tonight (provided that we have electricity and that we aren’t dumped into a country wide black-out with all the heater action going on).
It has been wildly exciting to see the snow here in town. People were having snow ball fights on the smoking balconies, everyone and his dog was outside playing like children and taking thousands of photos, and someone even built a snow man on our walkway (Steamcleaner says it looks more like a Tokoloshi than a snowman, but it’s a very decent effort). We have quite a few secret contractors from India and they were going nuts, all seeing snow for the very first time. One lady even took her shoes off and went galloping across the lawn in joy!
Just this morning I asked Nicola if she thought it looked like rain. She said it looked like it was going to snow, and that we could build a snow man and put a scarf on it. I said yes, and a carrot for a nose. “Nee Mamma, nie ‘n wortel nie! Dis net vir hasies. Hy kan nie dit eet nie.” Silly me…😉
