    Still very wet and cold here but forecast is for better next week, hope so cos the garden is really suffering now.
    Houses just below us got flooded last Saturday and Garden Fete cancelled.

    What an awful shame for those affected by the floods, BigBilly. Certainly hope the forecast is correct, BB. You, & your garden, deserve some decent weather. One minute, drought, the next, floods. Sounds like our weather.

    The weather has certainly been strange everywhere, Bruiser. What about our temps last Friday, (the 13th July) & Saturday??? It was the highest ever, for July (our winter) at 27.6°C (81.7°F) on the Friday, then on Saturday it dropped to 17°C (62.6°F)!!!!! Unbelievable!!! :o

    never a truer word said!!

    We had a hail storm that stretched from Cape Town CBD through to Hermanus which is about an hour's drive away along the N2 from CT, then a few days later the N1 near Beaufort West was completely closed to traffic because of heavy snow. We have had no snow but have felt the cold from that snow. Not sure how far it stretched down toward CT but the other morning it was 2 deg and freezing cold, and pours with rain every day. We did however have two days of rest from the rain, yesterday and the day before was brilliant and sunny. But today back to very cold and rainy rainy rainy.

    A a lovely day everyone !

    Gosh, that is lousy weather, Dawn. Makes our "crappy" weather feel almost tropical as the temps haven't dropped much below a minimum of 10°C (50°F) with the maximums being around 18-20°C.

    Our sunny days have ended for the time being as today is a 3D day. Dull, damp & dismal. :lol3:

    It rained so hard yesterday all day, with gale force winds in the afternoon, last night on the news they said 400 families had to be evacuated due to flooding around the Cape Town area. We woke up to rain and dismal skies this morning but miraculously it seems to be clearing and the sun is shining now :cheers: Hoorah

    :apgw: :sun: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: Congratulations on your sunny day, Dawn. :bravo: :fun:

    The torrential rain does not sound so good though. Luckily, at the moment, whatever rain we have been having hasn't been that bad. Hope the sun sticks around for a while so you can thaw out. :cool4:

    we are having a bit of a heat wave at the moment. It is very early spring & the temp at 1.30pm was 28.1°C or 83°F with stiff NNW winds blowing in from the tropics bringing the warm air. Humidity was only 36% which is very low for us. (The nights are still cool, though.)

    This is bushfire weather!!!! :o

    Today it is stinking hot for spring (although, strictly speaking, it is still winter as the equinox is still to come), as it was 29.6°C or 85°F at 1pm, with the warmest part of the day yet to come. :sun: :hot!:

    Had a look back through the records & we haven't had any appreciable rain since June, so that has been a very dry 2 & 1/2 months. Of course, the ground was so wet, from all the rain we had had previously, it took more than 6 weeks to dry out on the surface.

    There is some rain forecast for tonight but so far there is no sign of any. :huh2:

    Been very close to frosts the last two days so must think about what to do with the tender plants which are still flowering well.
    Heavy rain and high winds forecast for today and there's a real feel of autumn in the air now in the mornings with some of the leaves starting to change colour.

    That certainly is an early start to autumn for you, BigBilly :cold: , so I won't mention the wonderful weather we have been having with our very early start to spring. :whistle:

    PS. I do really hope your plants are able to continue their flowering for some time yet. :D

    The weather forecaster's were right, two days of really heavy rain and high winds here but horrendous
    floods in many parts of the country with many people having to abandon their homes.

    That is a shame, BigBilly. There hasn't been much in our TV news about this, which is unusual. Do hope you will soon have some decent weather.

    That will do your garden a power of good, Glad.

    We haven't had any proper rain for over three months & it is really very warm for spring. Yesterday it climbed to 33°C or 92°F.

    That is the way our summer was too Joy. Now at the end of the growing season we are getting rain.

    Frost is not far away. Prediction of upper 30's tonight. I went out before the rain and gathered as many cukes as I could. Will pickle them tonight. It is sure nice to use some of the dill seed the grands and I harvested this summer.

    The turnips, spinach and lettuce will be fine. Takes a killing freeze to get them. The beans are in full bloom and tiny. They need at least another week for a harvest enough for a meal. We will see. The weather man says it should warm up next week.

    Our dry winter is the norm which it hasn't been for a while, Glad. Our summer is supposed to be the wet season but we have had so many wet, cool summers, in a row, we are overdue for a hot, dry one.

    Hope, for the sake of your beans, that the frosts do not eventuate for a while yet. Temps in the 30's is something I haven't experienced for many decades. The upper 50's is about as low a nighttime minimum as I could handle. :lol3:

    That is a shame, BigBilly. Do hope you can get some more beans & corn for the pot.

    We are very lucky, as we do not have frosts at all, especially as parts of eastern & southern Australia have been hit with an unseasonable cold change these past few days. Some parts have had snow for the first time in a hundred years while other areas, who do get snow in the middle of winter, have had mid spring snow. As for us, we have had cool nights & early mornings with lower day time temps down in the low to mid 20'sC. :cold:

    A very warm day today with the NNW wind coming straight down from the tropics. The temp was about 35°C (95°F) with the relative humidity really low at 26%. I sure would have trouble getting in & out of the car. Zap, zap, zap... :omg: Luckily, I do not have to go anywhere today. :lol3:
