Rain.

After the rain.

We had our first good showers of the season. (Before, we’ve had a few light precipitations – if there is such a word – I wouldn’t really call it rain.)

The night of the 5th, the Western Cape had RAIN. We measured 50mm, a farmer about 25km from us had 100mm, and he reckons there were places in the Overberg that had 250mm!!! Besides everything being properly soaked, there were some damage to roads as well. I’m not going to talk too much, rather show you some pics – we drove around to see the changes and the rivers coming down, as well as checking on some of the damage that was caused by the water.

Have a happy Friday, and a good and safe weekend! 🙂

River flowing strongly and much wider than normal after the rain.
Another scene after the rain.
Reeds washed up on the banks of the river (normally just a stream.)
Oops! Road damage.
