It was only a few short months ago that we were assured Cape Town was facing a national disaster, because of the drought:

And we were left in no uncertain terms that climate change was to blame:

Fast forward to today, and we find that Cape Town’s major dams have double the water of a year ago, and are 56% full:

Indeed, dam levels are almost as high as the same date in 2015, and much higher than 2016:

In the last 12 months, water storage has risen by 261,000 ML.

Although water usage has been cut by about 200 ML since March, this would only account for about 28000 ML.

So it seems it was not climate change after all!!
