|Funnel cloud - Suurbraak end January 2017|
Back at the end of January, one of our neighbours, Rogan, took this pic of a funnel cloud near Suurbraak. We don't usually get tornado's here.
But, I have never seen this before. Ever. I harvested the last of our pears and whilst I was toddling round the fruit orchard, I noticed something strange. Something completely out of the ordinary.
|Mid-February and the apple trees are producing blossoms - again?|
Then, last week, I noticed that the apple trees were producing blossoms. Again???
|Not just one blossom, but blossoms all over the tree...|
|Another type of apple - and it's also producing apple|
blossoms - in February???
From what I understand, apple trees need cold winters to produce blossoms. We have had anything but cold weather here this summer. Plus, March is the beginning of autumn, how can the apple trees be producing spring blossoms in the middle of February?
~ Sigh~ and there will still be naysayers who deny that climate change / global warming is a reality.
The major dams supplying water to Cape Town have enough water left for roughly 80 days. The Cape Town municipality has started reducing the flow rate of potable water in order to keep a supply of water available to the residents of that town and Level 3b water restrictions are in place.
On a bigger scale Nasa is monitoring the imminent breakaway of Larsen C ice shelf in Antarctica - due, they say, to warmer oceans. Plus they are measuring increased temperatures in Antarctica itself which have measured 2.8oC (5oF) warmer than normal.
Supposed First World leaders are in denial. Normal people are in denial.
Don't let the naysayers influence you.
Prepare yourselves for a very different future.
The signs are everywhere.
