This pretty, wintery scene is yesterday, in the sub-tropical Drakensburg, in South Africa. Snow fell in many places in South Africa yesterday, it seems, including Gauteng, which last saw snow in 1981. For the past five years, when we lived in Johannesburg, I anticipated snow in Joeys, but it did not come. We leave, it comes! It was our daughter Michelle's first chance to get up close and personal with the white stuff, as for grandsons Rhys and Matthew who just thought is was too cold!
