forecast says its 60 km h gusting 90 kmh here at port alfred, and its not letting up, fortunately as usual we set up with our back to the south westerly and our set up has stood up well, cant say as much for the trees.
two roads diverged in a wood and i took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.

Expect some more of this for the next few months - August, September and October are the normal windy months ( south westerlies ) for the Eastern Cape, especially along the coast. Batten down the hatches.

From the photo, it looks like that branch is resting on your car - hope no damage was done.

not in this wind no, but tomorrow [ friday ] forecast is no wind, just the swells but taking it out anyway because it looks like the only good day left this month. you clearly recognized the invader cat by the colour scheme, the very reason why i left the exterior original, for its identity.

gosh, the wind is gusting up to 110 kms here at the moment, but our set up is sorted and is standing up well , making a few minor adjustments here and there and checking and tensioning regularly.

Cold wind blowing here in Gonubie as well. Knocked over my heavy weighted umbrella stand - first time this has ever happened. My pool is wall to wall covered in leaves. Good day to stay in bed with a book or watch TV. Forecast is for a bit of rain tonight. 

Hope you remain firm and dry, George.
