Power problems

THE week before Christmas my computer crashed because of a power surge after load shedding. The week after New Year it happened again and destroyed the workings of the computer.

Further north, the sandy sourveld region around Dundee has also had good rains, but the soils are a bit wet and the veld looks leached. However, even further north, the Paulpietersburg farmers, who had terrible fires and frosts last winter, have recovered incredibly well with beautiful grass cover and the burnt trees are reshooting. Their maize is outstanding and a sight to be seen. Obviously the soils are good and the farmers are excellent managers.
