Wind in Cape Town – The Cape Doctor is here

Posting has been quite the last few days due to the strong South Easterly winds, otherwise known as the Cape Doctor. The wind was gusting up to 60k/h over the weekend and the first half of the week, making loosing your flip flops in the wind a real concern.
The wind reeked havoc around the city, leaving lots of dust and rubbish everywhere, but it blows the nasty cold and flu bugs away for summer.
Coincidentally, it also blows the warm surface water away (on the Atlantic side of Cape Town) which is why False Bay is warmer than the Atlantic side in summer.
