May 7 – Pretoriuskop

I woke up feeling refreshed after only about 5 hours of sleep, but it felt so good to sleep in a bed last night. The shower also felt wonderful. My final flight to land in the Kruger National Park at Skukuza was scheduled for 10:00 am, but I still had to pick up the SIM… Continue reading May 7 – Pretoriuskop

Bug Day

It was 19C with 98% humidity when Chester and I walked along the Red River this morning.  It is only supposed to get up to 26C this afternoon, but with that much humidity, I closed the windows and turned the air conditioner on when we got back home again.    It had rained last night, but… Continue reading Bug Day

When it gets this hot, everyone is running their air conditioners and/or fans and there… Continue reading Heat Wave Continues

We had a few cooler days so my air conditioner got a rest, but its back on now.  Last night it only dropped to 19C, and today it is going up to 28C with the next few days over 30C. I dropped the car off for some servicing this morning.  Chester came along with me… Continue reading Heat Wave

A Cool Morning

For the first time in over 2 weeks, I turned the air conditioner off last night.  Since the humidity is so high, there wasn’t any use turning it off even if the temperature was dropping a bit below 20C overnight because it would have to work harder to get rid of the humidity the next… Continue reading A Cool Morning
