Glad we waited until after the storm to go for our last evening drive. Most of it had melted by then. Wouldn't have been nice to get hail damage before going home! It was still thrilling to see all the water everywhere after it had been so bone dry earlier on. So glad we booked the extra night and didn't miss it!

Darn, we missed that by a day... Would have loved to see that in real.

AND it would have been the first time that Samevloeing would have produced
something else than springbok, wildebeest or oryx. :tongue:
