Snow settled on Table Mountain, Cape Town over the weekend as a fierce, late-season Antarctic blast tore through South Africa.
The Table Mountain Aerial Cableway is a cable car transportation system offering visitors a five-minute ride to the peak — it was due to open on Tues, Sept 1, but thanks to the recent “surprise” snowfall, the cableway opened early to allow folks a chance to enjoy the rare dusting.
The Cableway company wrote on Facebook:
“We’re so excited about the snowfall, so we’ve opened two days early. This allows you to also experience this winter wonderland on #TableMountain!”
The company also posted a video of the summit’s live feed to Twitter:
It was apparently too cold and windy for anyone to venture up to play in it, but a spokesman for the company said it created so much excitement.
The spokesman added: while sleet is relatively common on Table Mountain, heavy snow such as this was something of a rare event.
Snow was experienced across many parts of South Africa over the weekend.
Sutherland received a significant dusting:
While “lots of low-level snow” also accumulated in Matroosberg and Ceres:
Even NASA appears to agree, if you read between the lines, with their forecast for this upcoming solar cycle (25) seeing it as “the weakest of the past 200 years,” with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Prepare for the COLD — learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
