I've been following the rapidly increasing drama over the awful drought in the Cape. We arrive in CT in early March for our annual vacation & I'm wondering what are the feelings on just how bad the situation will be.

Is there any chance that any of the proposed desalination plants will be in operation bearing in mind the negative response to the initial tenders?

We do have the option of remaining in Hermanus where we start our trip in February.

I’m still coming but have cancelled my night in Newlands and added an extra night to my Overberg stay. I shall be in McGregor too in April!

I just don’t fancy the risk of no water in Newlands.
