The questions we want to ask ourselves are:
Is this a sign of the last days?
Is the world coming to and end?
Do we want to consider this as a sign of the world coming to an end?
Most of the Eastern Cape and high grounds of KwaZulu-Natal were snow covered. I myself had never heard of snow in Africa. Except for in the movies of course like in the movie The Seventh Sign.
This to me is shocking that a snow storm would bring in Army troops to help out motorists stuck in the snow along the main N3 highway to Durban.

But, on a Tuesday in June of 2011 there had been snow in the Namib desert.
Reports and photographs of the snowfall circulated rapidly and widely across the Internet and inboxes bulged with rare images depicting snow in areas usually associated with heat and dust, not biting cold and white blankets of snow. John Rabie from Namibgrens Guest Farm close to the Spreetshoogte Pass where the majority of snow and rain fell, described the scenes of low clouds, mist and snow on Tuesday in June.
It was ice cold, especially as the wind was blowing," he said. The snow fell during the day, from around eleven in the morning until the afternoon. He said the minimum temperature on Tuesday was minus two degrees Celsius, while the day's maximum temperature did not go above five degrees. Although the temperatures had not improved by yesterday, the absence of wind took away the worst bite of the cold, he said.
