Winter has arrived and with it came the snow. The organizers of Greyton and Genadendals annual music festival could not have predicted such cold and wet conditions. For those serious music lovers who braved the weather Greyton did not disappoint.
Two cold fronts passed through the Western Cape this weekend. Greyton got off lightly, but Cape Town took the brunt of it with large amounts of hail, rain, wind and localized flooding. The mountains between us and the coast always seem to take the edge off.
The wind however did remove the last of the autumn leaves and deposit them in strange piles in unlikely places. Greyton now has a decidedly wintery feel but the view is adequate compensation.
This is my favorite time for invigorating walks in the crystal air and long evenings in front of the fire. You might consider it some time.
