I’ve lived in Johannesburg since 1999 except for the year that I lived in London. For some reason I’ve always just missed being here to experience the ‘snow in johannesburg’. In fact I’ve never really experienced a snow fall. Once only when we were children, there was a snow fall about an hour from Pietermaritzburg. We took a drive out there and played in in for a bit. Today, I was home and witnessed a snow fall in this highveld city for myself on and off for most of the day. The temperature did not go above 3 degrees celcius. It was grim and beautiful and cold. I didn’t really go outside except to take a few photos – the flakes were melting soon after touching the ground.
