Photographs of a Cape Storm

Being a School Teacher provides the opportunity to hear the cutest sayings from children. The Cape is known for various storms, some years being stronger than others. In the 1980's there was a storm that was particularly strong. It rained for a few days, with heavy rains and a lot of storm damage.

At the end of the storm a rainbow stretched across the sky. Noticing this from the classroom window, a second grade child folded his arms, looked up at the sky, shook his head and said: "Promises! Promises!" After all, hadn't G-d promised not to destroy the world by flood? Well to a 7 year old boy, the city he lived in was his world.

Have a look at the photographs below for an idea of how this little boy felt.

Photo's taken in Somerset West, South Africa on Sunday 12 July 2009 when the Cape had a massive storm.

While the images of nature might be interesting, fascinating, even a beautiful image, the storm was very frightening to drive in....

One taxi or car load misjudged how deep the water was.
