Thankfully, there appears to be very limited (if any) multiplication thereof.
But wow. It’s COLD in Cape Town. Beautifully sunny and crisp, but COLD. Look at this from this morning:
Ostensibly, it was 3oC before the gentle breeze straight from Antarctica kicked in. But to be honest, once you get down to that level of temperature, it becomes very hard to tell the difference between -1 and 3 anyway.
Then again, cold and wet is the default for Cape winters, so I guess that a bit colder and wetter than normal isn’t too much of a thing.
But I’m very glad for the fireplace today.
