The casual phrase “I was blown away” took on quite a different meaning at the Castle of Good Hope on Monday morning, 29 October 2012. The famous Cape Doctor had been very busy throughout the night in the Mother City, with gale-force southeaster winds howling down from the top of Table Mountain and un-doing much of the hard work done by the ground crew and audiovisual crew in preparation for the Cape Town Military Tattoo 2012. The heavy tablecloth was draped over Table Mountain and the wind was doing its best to knock people off their feet with gusts over 40kph. Not surprisingly, there was a fair bit of damage at the Castle too.
