Flash floods in Somerset West, Cape Town! See the photos and short video.
Original post from 12 July 2009.
This afternoon Megie, Courtney, Liam and I were driving home after lunch (I preached at Kaleidescope Church this morning). On our way home the rain started bucketing down! Within a few minutes the water was so deep that it was up the the bottom of the car doors! I haven't seen rain like this in years!
I thank God that we have a warm, dry, house - but heck I now know that my work in Power that helps to build affordable (and free) houses is truly worthwhile!
This short video was shot on my Nokia E90 by Megie.
This coming week I am back at the Stellenbosch Business school for the last of the contact sessions for the Senior Management Graduate Diploma. I am looking forward to learning more!

Here are a few more photos that I was sent.
This picture was taken on Victoria road at the bridge that runs from the N2 to Main road in Somerset West - look how deep that Taxi is in the water!
Thankfully the folks in the Taxi managed to get out safely!
This is the Steers Franchise in Main road Somerset West. Amazing!
