It snowed today!I live in South Africa, and it hardly ever snows anywhere except on the mountains.
Today it has been snowing all day & it is so exciting because very few of us have experienced snow before.
All my grade 8 & 9 pupils wanted to do was go outside and play!
My dogs are confused - the looks on their faces clearly say "What the hell is this?!"
Although it is really cold, the only two words that are swirling round my brain are "pretty" and "gentle". Love it! Love it! Love it!

EDIT: Apparently it is the first time in recorded history that it has snowed throughout the entire country at the same time. (News reports are saying in all 9 provinces, but we've only had 9 provinces for the past 18 years!!)

Seems like we've been in drought so long, I would have that same reaction right here in the U. S. !

 Have fun!

Wow!!! I was just going to just post about how hot it was going to be this week. 116 this week. It will cool off Monday to 110.

Enjoy the snow. I didn't know it snowed in Africa. My son may go there in October for the Navy/Army. He'll be off the Red Sea. I've heard it's not safe there. I really don't know much about the area.
