Last Friday afternoon a strong cold front pasted over the Western Cape bringing heavy rains and gale force winds. Greyton missed most of the rain but certainly got its share of the wind. Sadly many of the older oaks took a heavy knock bringing down the power lines in two places in Vlei Street. Greytons woes were further compounded by the 6600 V line between Greyton and Caledon being damaged in two places.
TWK, Eskom and Greyton electrical were on the scene from first light Saturday but it took until 15h00 on Sunday to restore power fully. This not doubt inconvenienced many business operators and visitors alike. Greyton is quite a resilient place and at the time of writing most of the downed trees have already been cleared and we are well on the mend.
