September in Johannesburg is springtime. It’s not much of the season. Winter ends abruptly, and hot weather with pulsing blue skies just arrives one morning. Even the trees seem to burst into leaf overnight. But September always bites back.
There is always one cold snap in the second half of the month. That happened today. It will last for three days, and then summer will be here. It will be another three weeks or so until the daily thunderstorm start.
The amazing thing is that this happens about as regularly as clockwork. And every year the majority of residents of Johannesburg act surprised. They always seem to be caught out by this cold snap.
How can people even begin to deal with constant is change when so many seem to battle with the entirely predictable?
