Rain, rain, rain and more rain

The worst drought in over 130 years, the coldest winter in living memory and it looks like we could have the most rain in George in living memory too. All in the space of a few short months. When I was told "if you don't like the weather in the Garden Route come back in 10 minutes", I didn't expect this to be literal .

It would appear roof leaks and damp are pretty much as common as a dripping tap and power cuts in our area. None are likely to be fixed properly .

I am usually an early bird and I must admit this winter, it has been increasingly more difficult to get up and dressed in layers of clothing to sit at a keyboard typing with gloves, beanie and a blanket, even though the heaters are on. Garden Route Homes are simply not built for this type of weather.
