The imposingly picturesque “Cape Town”, South Africa — with its iconic Table Mountain.

South Africa is one of my favorite cricket teams. I never miss any of their games on Willow — my 24×7 cricket channel on Roku. Plus, I usually read any news I see about SA.

So, I was very surprised the other day when I came across this “Day Zero” story. I Googled and read a couple of articles to make sure I got the drift.

Wow.

Earlier in the month I had watched the 1st Test Match, SA vs. India, from Cape Town. The ground looked lush and everybody seemed happy and prosperous. No indication, whatsoever, that they were all staring at an abyss.

Yes, a 3-year drought. I guess some are hoping for non-stop rains in the next 2-months to avert this disaster.

4 million people.

This could be serious. Very serious.

You would have thought that SA, not a poor country by any means, could have done more. I guess water can be shipped in. Not sure how much water they have in the entire country. It is not a small country.

I will keep you posted.
