Winter is back… or still here

Just yesterday I asked somebody if they also thought that we didn’t have a very cold winter this year as I stood sweating in the sun outside the lodge at Mount Camdeboo Game Reserve outside Graaff-Reinet.  This morning we woke up to a freezing wind and snow on the mountains in the area.  On my way back this afternoon I heard it hailed in some parts of Port Elizabeth. I pulled off the freeway and made a quick stop in Despatch (for a Geocache) and snapped this pic of an empty play park and the approaching clouds.  Cold and abandoned.  In black and white it feels even colder.  Winter just reminded us that she’s still here and not leaving just yet.
