"Earth's hottest temperature ever recorded in the month of October occurred on Tuesday, October 27, 2015 in South Africa, when Vredendal hit a remarkable 48.4°C (119.1°F).

According to Herrera, the previous world October heat record of 47.3°C was set at Campo Gallo, Argentina on 16 October 1936, and South Africa's highest reliable temperature for any month is 48.8°C (119.8°F), recorded at Vioolsdrif in January 1993. "

This is for the month of October.

Never start a story with the weather - so it is told.

This is all on the table, when will it rain, when, when ...

And I lived to tell the tale.

The baby antelope coming in are weak, thin, ...

We will try to save as many as is possible.

25 December 2015 - X-mas Day

A full moon for the day, hidden by scattered clouds of grey and ocre, dust and rain is on the day's weather menu.

Still a dry situation, still we wait.

26th, 27th, 28th, windstorms with dust, coming in from directions hereto unknown.

160 kilometer north (100 miles), flooding in places, what a strange world we live in.

December end:
Closing the year off with a whimper, watched the Royal Variety Concert, and that was about it.
There are so many issues to carry onto the New Year, let my resolution stand as it was many years ago, let 2016 be THE YEAR - the year when I may get rid of some baggage. Selah!

- to be con't (disregard this)
