A meetup braai is a great idea. 
We are having just as much rain down here!  Real duck weather this!

Were practising for NZ here in Durban with all the rain we have been having.  At least in NZ you probably have power and carry on not like here.

The other day, we had a very rare thunderstorm.  When the lightning hit, the lights went out for about a nanosecond and then were on again... nothing to worry about.  The house shook though!  :heeha:
lekker sweet as, y'all

Never look down upon someone, unless you are helping him up.

HAHA, we had the same thing the otherday here. The lightning was also very bad, our lights flashed a bit too, but never went out.

We have gas, so even if power did go out, it would not be an emergency either, everything would just carry on as normal.
