A sign of bad weather.

Have a look at our mountains today, and it continues to rain.
But how did I know that is was going to rain? Easy, as the sky told me.

The belief here is that a halo around the sun means bad weather.

The first two photos were taken on Monday this week.

I am now also leaning towards this belief as until now on Saturday we had very strong winds and buckets of rain every day and even more at night. The weird thing is that it is not a constant rain, as there are cloud breaks with sunshine. In the past it would continue for days with solid rain, but now the it rains sporadically.

This is how it started and later the halo was more solid, forming a perfect round halo around the sun.

Tuesday.

Clouds were gathering slowly during the day as you can see here.

Look how the wind was chasing the clouds to form a big dark mass of cloud.

Wednesday.

A dark day with rain, but it could not stop some guys from flying.

Some other guys were also flying.

Now today Saturday.

Lovely to see how the clouds engulf the mountains.

A closer look, and that's white cloud at the bottom.

Lovely weather that we are having here, as nature, the farms, and our gardens love the water. So do we, as we know that water is life, and that it fills our dams. South Africa is a water scarce country and we appreciate every drop of rain that we can get. But if only the people would look after the rivers and the dams, as we have a continuous littering problem.
Storm drains are blocked by litter causing huge floodings to take place, and it is always a struggle for the emergency services.
We only hope that this new storm will not cost any lives.

And That's All Friends!

Even though it's the sign of bad weather, it has its own beauty.

Muy buenas fotografías uno pasa desapercibido el daño que causa la contaminación en el ambiente, deben intencificarse las campañas de concientización.

When people don't think what they are doing nor care, Mother Nature shows them what can happen. It's the same here when they cut whole forests down and then are surprised when landslides destroy their homes.

Last two photos and where the wind was chasing the clouds are my favourite photos today 😃

Thank you Hannes,

So true words spoken by you and yes we simply do not understand that when we destoy nature, we are in fact busy destroying ourselves.
I don't think that we can ever re-construct nature exactly as it was before we destroyed it.

I put the last two in especially for you and liking the one where the wind chases the clouds is a bonus for me 🙂

Cheers and thanks.

Mother Nature will reconstruct itself but first she needs to get rid of us ... sounds mad, I know, but I also know that's gonny be her hardest task, because mankind might be stupid and ignorant, but we are also persistent 😉

Tanks a lot my friend 😃


!PIZZA and !BEER - sounds like a nice dinner :)

Maybe we won't last that long Hannes, as the results of some nature studies reckon it's already too late to try and repair all of the damage that we have done.

Yesterday in the news a big rock crashed through the roof of a house somewhere in the USA and it landed on a pillow next to a sleeping woman. Scientists have confirmed that it is a meteor and the story should be on Google.
South Africa also has some huge craters left by meteors that struck the earth.

So who knows, maybe one day a huge pill will strike our planet to heal all of our headaches and it doesn't sound very comfortable to me.

Cheers and thanks.

In that case Mother Nature has done a good job and I can only hope that the pill is big and fast 😁enough that we don't notice we are not here anymore

Hahaha, I like your thoughts and yes, I do think that the pill would be a fiery rock about the size of the moon without the shine. It will connect at a speed of approximately 700 thousand kph.
So it will be a farewell for all of us 😉

Cheers and thanks.

Good evening Zac,

I think this pill would be enough to make a reset for Mother Earth 😁

Good evening Hannes,

Yes, that will be one hell of bang that could even knock you planet into reverse.
Spinning it back to 1500s so it all can start again.

Cheers and thanks.

Good evening Zac,

yep, but do you believe that we would do it right the next time?

Good evening Hannes.

No, definitely not, unless we take the knowledge that we have now back with us.
I don't think that will be and everything will just be repeated exactly as it is now until the next meteor strike.

Cheers and thanks.
