Yes, it is officially the Winter Solstice down here in Cape Town. This is our shortest day with the longest night.
Apart from it being a little chilly now and then, when a cold front all the way from the Antarctic sweeps over us, you wouldn’t know it was winter just by looking outside.
It still looks sunnier here than most summer days in the northern hemisphere, where, yes, you have your Summer Solstice right now; longest day and shortest night.
All I could wish for really, is some rain!
