I sincerely hope no serious floods for the third year in a row for Kruger! :(

Stop-start rain here as well today.....but ground is so dry that within an hour of the rain stopping - all the puddles have gone!

Been raining steadily since Friday in White River. Friends at Punda say the heavens opened last night and still raining. Crooks Corner closed. Enough already!

Not sure of that but do know that Lephalale (Ellisras) area very dry also up to Tuli Block and Mapungubwe - hopefully they have had good rains lately.

Currently dry but heavily overcast - clouds are a lighter grey than the last few days so....... maybe the rain has finished for now? Grand total of 72mm in rain meter (includes yesterday's reported 68mm)- biggest amount this year! However, the overall for the year is still way down on the average and on last year's total.

All the dirt roads were closed yesterday between Phala Gate and Letaba, but the river level at the Letaba camp is still quite low. Not much overnight rain.

We did use the S114 today going to the walk area.....but it is closed and very muddy and slippery in places. Saw a couple of cars on it - not sure why they were there and where they had come from.

We've had 955.8mm this year with our annual average being 1009mm, so not too far off target.
These figures are from the newspaper. I don't know where they get their statistics from, but I do know that we get a lot more rain in our rain gauge than what is published in the paper.

I'm also glad I'm not in Calitzdorp.

It's a beautiful morning but the storm lilies are up in the garden so maybe we'll get a storm later.

Sun is shining and humidity is high.
