We had some pretty freaky & frightening storms this weekend! Gale force winds shaking and battering our little house, horizontal rain, ice pellets, humungous waves on our beach, where there seldom is a wave to be seen! Eek! I felt very privileged to be able to sit cosily inside in front of a fire. Although I used to love storms as a child, it is really difficult to enjoy them now, knowing that so many people facing the same wind and rain are living in dwellings of corrugated iron, plastic and cardboard, not so very far from where I live.
This photograph was taken in Sea Point (on the other side of the peninsula from where we live) yesterday. The swells were so high, and wind so strong, that roads next to the promenade were covered with foam and water!
