RK Kriel, Stellenbosch
Upon receipt of Bolander the very first article I read is Norman McFarlane’s “Opinion”. I find his articles factual and to the point. His latest on the Cape water situation was very good.
I have been a resident of Stellenbosch since 1987 and have kept rainfall records since 1988. These figures make interesting reading and the downward trend in the rainfall is alarming. As a matter of interest, here are some statistics:
The annual average according to my figures for Stellenbosch is 768mm and the year 2015 is the lowest to date. In January 2002 I measured 127mm which is the highest for that month so far. Let us hope that, that could be repeated this month.
Always a pleasure to read Bolander.
