Just a reminder

You occasional/annual (when I remember) reminder that:

“There is snow on the mountains because it is cold.”


“It is cold because there is snow on the mountains.”

It seems to be a Cape Town old wives tale that the snow on the local mountains is somehow responsible for the chilly temperatures in the city.

Here’s the view from our bedroom (long lens, yes) yesterday.

But this isn’t a tricky “chicken or egg” situation. It get cold and then it snows.

Not the other way around.
