We received over 200mm of rain in total over the past 48 hours. Fortunately it has stopped now, and the sky seems to be clearing in the West. (Update: Its raining again!) All we need now is for the power to come back on. Power dropped last night almost exactly at 7p.m. and is still off. At first we thought it was just part of Eskom's rolling blackout program, but, at 8:30 the next morning, clearly this is something else. Trees down on powerlines, perhaps.
The veggie garden seems to have come through it pretty well, though I see the little hoofprints of a bushbuck who took advantage of the dog sleeping inside.
