This may be hard to believe for Americans currently sweating out the June heat, but it is snowing in South Africa!
Actually, it’s a little hard to believe for South Africans as well. Temperatures dip pretty low in central South Africa during the winter season, particularly when counting the chill factor of the wind blowing across the highveld.
But there hasn’t been an actual sticking snow in Jo’burg for more than a quarter-century. So Bob and I were pretty surprised to wake up to that familiar white blanket in our South African back yard.
The weather service is saying the cold front should lift today, and take us back to normal winter temperatures… chilly, but no ear-muffs required!
