Sue & Gordon's Notebook - July 2016
If you read our March 2016 newsletter, you may recall that we ended off with a picture of a dark, cloud filled sky, and the following text:
"Lastly from us in this newsletter, the picture below of a dark and menacing sky in the early evening is "music to our ears" as the thunder and lightning roll in and bring much needed rain to this arid part of the planet. Who says that Climate Change is not happening …… just as other parts of the World have had to deal with damaging floods, we have had the exact opposite. Please keep a little thought for us all in Southern Africa in the back of your minds for some much needed rain, which we still desperately need in the next few months."
