Could that be the sound and smell of rain in JHB?

Wow - a 5 minute drizzle just got me all excited and hoping that more is to follow here in JHB.

Alas, though, it seems that the drizzle is already over.
Seriously now - we are in dire need of some good soaking showers up on the Highveld.

Now I don't know if there is any truth in this, but someone told me this week, that the longer our first rains are delayed, the more likely it is that their arrival will be a rather aggressive one...

That means hectic thunderstorms, hail and other such pleasant things.
So with that in mind, head for the nearest tree if you get caught driving in a hailstorm anytime soon!

That, and hope like all hell that any hail we do get, is too small to cause any damage to anything...!
