On Tuesday morning as I drove to work, the temperature had only managed to climb to 0.5 degrees celsius on the car thermometer (just after eight AM). By ten o’clock, there were reports of snow all over Joburg pouring in on the radio, and on friends’ facebook and BBM statuses. There was no snow at my office in Bryanston, so I thought I had pretty much missed out on the commotion. By the time I left the office at just after 1, the snow en-route had already melted away. But by 3PM at home, the snow started falling again, and although there was only a thin layer, there was enough for Alex and Stuart to build a little snowman !
