Wet summer ahead

I mean, it’s not going to rain all the time, but climatologists are predicting that it will be wetter than an average summer. And that’s no bad thing, given that Cape Town generally gets less than 100mm of rain between November 1st and March 31st each year. So a bit wetter than that shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

Wandile Sihlobo, Senior Lecturer Extraordinary at the Department of Agricultural Economics at Stellenbosch University describes the forecast as “comforting”:

And with our local dams also at a “comforting” 85.6% full, it’s all looking rather rosy.

Water-wise, at least.

Also, if the “comforting” rains could just hold off for the next week or so, I’d be really delighted. Please can someone organise that for us?

Thanks in advance.
