Take a look at this incredible image of the clouds coming over the mountains this morning.
They look just like a massive wave rolling over the mountain. I took this picture with my trusty iPhone.
At this time of year the wind in the Western Cape can be strong. When the SouthEaster starts blowing the clouds often peek over the mountains just like this. The wind is strong enough to rip the roof off a house or blow over a buss! People have to be careful when they walk that the gusts don't sweep them off their feet. It is incredible how beautiful, and powerful, the wind and clouds are!
Today is the first time that I've seen the clouds quite like this. It is called a black southeaster - it normally brings strong wind and some rain.
Days like these remind me of God's power!
Does anybody have a southeaster story to share? My most significant story was last year's Cape Argus cycle tour - this was the year that Matt Damon road the race. The winds were so strong that numerous riders got blown off their bikes in the gusts. It was a tough ride in the wind!
