Hi

Just came back from a few day's in Herefordshire site just by River Wye. Came back early as to hot with all windows open it was 84F in Motor Home.

Even the river was drying up, my Sister and brother in law hired a canoe at Hay on Wye. You get it from Hay on Wye canoe down to site about 2hrs travel took 3hrs as canoe kept getting stuck in the shallow water.

Happy Caravanning

Having just seen the long range (10 day) forecast there ain't any appreciable rain on the horizon either.

 

Spare a thought for the Firemen & Troops who are dealing with heathland fires both in Scotland & England at the moment (& probably elsewhere)

Feel sorry for the people in Cape Town as they almost ran out of water.  It was as dry as a bone when we visited end of March for a few days.  Now they have had torrential rain and areas that never ever flood, have flooded!  Already the dams are over 40% full considering April 20th as the day the dam was supposed to run dry.  Long live the sunshine.

PS Kwazulu Natal is being hit with an icy blast and they expect the temperature to drop down to a freezing 18C!  From the local paper;   “Temperatures are expected to drop from tomorrow in KZN and maximum temperatures will be very low. There will be strong winds along the coast reaching up to 35 knots,” he said. “(On Tuesday) temperatures in Durban could reach a low of 18°C, Ladysmith 12°C and the Drakensberg could be as low as 10°C,” said Maluleke.

Hi

Not going away again while temp like this,  wife overheated and went in to panic could not breath,shaking and was sick.  Cooled her down with wet towels.

If you are getting on a bit and frail I would advice staying in your home.

Now we are home she is much better cooler in our Bungalow and she feels much safer.

It may have been better if you had placed her in the car, started the engine and switched on the air con to its coolest.  It worked for two elderly ladies that were feeling the heat!

If we where away in our Caravan would have done that.  But was away in our 1998 Fiat Ducato Motor Home which does not have Air con.
