Super Mom

and we drove and we drove and we drove

I have promised the boys for the past four years that I would take them to see snow when it does. Every time, it snows during the week when I’m at work and they in school.
See, it doesn’t rain in Klerksdorp. 16 years ago it “snowed”. Dust of snow covered the ground.

This morning they predicted snow in the Drakensberg and there and then it was decided that we would go. I would finally keep my promise. Clients were moved, bags packed in record time. We left at 14:30 with a TOA of around 19:00. We arrived at 22:30. I can tick of driving in snow from my bucket list. Visibility was around 1 meter. I could hardly make out the middle of the road. Heavy heavy snow, for almost 4 hours. So the kids saw the snow at night. Now I just hope we wake up to a winter wonderland!
