Through my window: Snow?


Last night was stormy with wind gusts over 100km an hour. Heavy showers on and off. Early morning there was silence. I got out of bed, opened the curtain, and this is what I saw.

From the main house looking at the same bed and hills.

I took Beatrix to school on foot. Flurries of tiny hail were blown into our faces. Then before reaching the school, snowflakes started fluttering around us. Beatrix was wet, luckily I packed an extra warm jersey in her bag. To tell the truth, we could not find her raincoat, which wasn’t the best thing this morning.

    Wow. Dis nou ‘n ervaring. Ek het destyds in Kokstad in die kapok moes skool toe stap.

      Ek was 1981 in Secunda. Ek onthou dit nog so goed omdat my seun toe vier weke oud was en ek met n parkhome vol nat doeke gesit het.

    EK is bang vir winde wat so erg waai. Dit moes nogal ‘n verrassing gewwes het toe jy daai gordyne ooptrek. Sterkte daar!

      Dankie vir sterkte. Eks ook maar nie op my gemak as ek so in die nag in bed lê en luister hoe die wind aan alles pluk. Was beslis onverwags gewees.

    En hier wou ek nou al begin feesvier dat die somer aangekom het! Pretoria het eergister 30-grade gehaal!

    Wat n lieflike uitsig het jy nie daar nie, Ineke. Ek kan my indink dat jy sommer emmers vol krag vir die dag kry wanneer jy jou gordyne oop trek soggens.

      Beslis krag vir die dag. Ek maak my gordyn altyd bietjie oop terwyl dit nog donker is sodat ek die sonsopkoms kan beleef terwyl ek nog knus onder komberse lê. Sodra ek sien dis ‘n ekstra mooi opkoms spring ek sommer op. Selfs saans se sonsondergang(goue uur) is ook elke namiddag ‘n belewenis.

    Wow, what a storm! All kinds of inclement weather for the season, and having hail in your face is NO fun at all.
    Its a wonder nothing was ruined in your pretty garden…at least not that I could see.

      Wasn’t pleasant at all but we experienced it in our faces. First time for Beatrix. Nothing ruined because nothing has been planted yet. The snow doesn’t do much it’s the hail that ruins the delicate flowers and leaves.
