Snow in Greyton, simply stunning!

Clearing with great views just after lunch.

Snow 1 020718

 

Residents this morning woke up to snow-covered mountains and some very chilly temperatures. A good snow fall like this has sadly been absent for several years and is essential for restoring depleted ground water supplies. Greyton also had 30+ mm of rain that is most welcome.

We can also report that areas above the TWK dam in Villiersdorp had 67mm of rain and good snow falls. The dam can be expected to fill quickly now and the melting snow will supply the area with an extended period of run off. The snow is not expected to last long as temperatures are forecast to rise considerably by weekend and this will most certainly take care of the snow. Hopefully this will not be the last of the year.
