Snow in Joburg August 2012

 Snow in Johannesburg! So what? Well, to those of you used to the fluffy white stuff that falls from the sky, this is not something we are used to here in sunny SA. To put it in perspective: The last time it snowed here I was still crapping in my pants and drinking out of a sippy cup. Back in 1981 I believe. It was quite amazing to see how people reacted to it. One would swear it was money falling from the sky instead of a form of precipitation in the form of crystalline water ice, consisting of snowflakes that fall from clouds. Children were let out of classes and office workers were running around outside all giggly and stuff! Ah well, perhaps the next time it snows here I may be still crapping in my pants and drinking out a sippy cup!
