25 March 2007

THE AFTERMATH OF HURRICANE GAMEDE - 25 March 2007 So it turned out that the storm of Thursday night, 15 March which kept me clutching to my bed with all fours was actually a Hurricane and not just any hurricane but one which had already been named 'Gamede' with its origin in Madagascar.

We went for a drive through the Kloof gorge this morning to have a closer look at the devastation Hurricane Gamede has left in his wake. There was an uneasiness in the air and a feeling of humbleness spilt over me, whilst I took these photos. It once again reminded me of how insignificant man's existence here on earth is and that there are definitely a force much greater out there. My garden scrapbooking album has been expanded again with this page I created of the grass Aloe Cooperi. I have also included a picture of 'Scrap' on this layout. We suspect that old Scrap has been murdered by workers of Suburban Roofing who was carrying out maintenance on our roof a while ago. So for the moment there are no one keeping an eye out for us when driving in and out of our garage.

- Calm after the storm signing off
