GREECE WHITE AND COLD WITH SNOW…SOUTH AFRICA HOT AND BLANCK WITH 'LOAD -SHEDDING ' AND SEVERE HEAT WAVE !

Greece White and Cold with Snow…South Africa Hot and Black with 'Load -Shedding' and Severe Heat wave!


In the last couple of days Greece has been experiencing a very cold and white February. Most of the country has been experiencing snowfall and it looks like Christmas all over again. 


Here in South Africa , however…we have had the worst Heat wave imaginable! Temperatures have reached 48%Celsius in certain parts of the country and humidity levels are very high. I thought I'd give our readers a little factual information on what a Heat wave entails:


When outside temperatures climb into the triple digits (over 40ºC) for a period of several days or even weeks, this prolonged period of excessive heat is known as a "heat wave". Heat waves are often accompanied by high humidity. While there is also no universal definition of a heat wave, (as people used to a hot climate may already be acclimatized to a period of high heat, where as the same heat visited on people in a usually cooler climate can cause severe disruption and heat deaths due to people not knowing what to do to minimize the risks), the real issue is the health and safety impact of prolonged heat and high humidity.


Notorious for causing widespread power outages, hundreds of heat-related illnesses, and even deaths, heat waves are perfectly survivable provided you take appropriate precautions. In general, our ability to regulate high temperatures is impacted by our health, age, and the quality of our shelter. 


So... to really make things even worse, South Africa has also been experiencing what we love to call here as... 'Load -Shedding' Most of you are probably thinking …"Well,  what the heck is this?" It basically means you are in the DARK!!!  No electricity for up to 4 hours a day!


What is South African load shedding?
Well...ESKOM…the company that supplies Electricity in South Africa has not been able to maintain certain power stations and so Load-Shedding has occurred. 
 
 

When there is not enough electricity available to meet the demand from all Eskom customers, it becomes necessary to interrupt supply to certain areas. This is called load shedding. It is different from a power outage that could occur for several other reasons. It is a last resort to balance electricity supply and demand. Eskom applies load-shedding when all other options have been exhausted. It is an effective way to avoid total collapse of the electricity supply grid (a national black-out) which will have disastrous outcomes for South Africa. If unbalances on the power is not managed this could lead to the risk of collapse of the entire power network. If this occurs, it could take weeks to restore power to the entire country. By rotating and shedding the load in a planned and controlled manner, the system remains stable. 

Well There You Have It…

South Africa might be one of the most beautiful countries in the world but at this moment... we seem to be rated as Third World…I wouldn't say it's the' Heat wave's' fault but rather the Electrical Companies 'weak ways'!


Greece…enjoy your beautiful White Winter and even if you are feeling the cold,  remember it is still brightening your day and night!


From a DARK South Africa... I bid you Good night!
