    No, really. I'm not making this up.

    Now this didn't happen in Johannesburg, but rather in Harrismith, which is about 180 miles south of here.

    Here's a picture I got off the web.

    Matt,

    Here you go. This was February in the back yard, and yes that is a snowmobile stuck in three feet of snow. I remember thinking the same thing. It is that time in between the snow and the extreme heat, and humidity that seems to be here forever. You know the 50 degrees and misting. Here in Wisconsin we get 7 days total that are sunny, 75 degrees, and 50 degree dew points. Usually late September. I have also included a picture of the same view with 90 degrees and 70 degree dew point.

    We had very little snow around here last winter, but the ski hill 3 hours north had over 57 feet. There was so much they couldn't plow it all away, and had to truck it off the mountain. They opened the hill for skiing and snowboarding on July 1 weekend because they still had so much. With the clouds and cool weather we have been having, I wouldn't be at all surprised if they still have a few feet.
