The Orange River was in flood in February, with 3500 cubic meters water flowing over the Augrabies Waterfalls (pictured above).  Although this massive body of water provided a truly spectacular sight, it was also extremely destructive to farms on the riverbanks as many vineyards suffered severe flooding. Fortunately, we only suffered a few cracks along the riverbanks which required repairs once the river had subsided. While these rains were extremely detrimental for table grape and raisin producers in the region, they brought great relief to drought-stricken regions in the greater Northern Cape region.
