Hello "mites" this is where you can tell us what the weather is like in your part of the world, no matter where you might be. :thumbs_up:

Here it is warm with a chance of rain later today and over the weekend.

Stay warm BirgitJo and Pumbaa :thumbs_up: BirgitJo your photograph of the snow is great. Quite the opposite from the summer weather that we have here in South Africa.

Glorious wet, miserable, cloudy, misty day in Joburg. We've had almost 80 mm since midnight and it looks like it isn't thinking of stopping any time soon. Hallelujah. :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

As of 4.10 pm we have had almost 110 mm since about midnight. It varies between a gentle rain and a heavier, steady rain, and the level in the rain gauge is creeping up. I went out earlier this afternoon and the streams that are normally a trickle are getting quite full. This should help the levels of the storage dams. :dance: :dance:
