ShowMe Paarl & Wellington Newsletter  #17.2.2
Welcome to the ShowMe Paarl and Wellington Newsletter 
February is the month of love and Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us.

Each year on February 14th, lovers exchange greeting cards, chocolates, gifts or flowers with their special “valentine.”
The day of romance that we call Valentine’s Day is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century,but has origins in the Roman holiday for fertility called Lupercalia.
As the saying goes, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Read our food writer, Colleen Grove’s take on Valentine’s Day, as well a delicious Valentine’s recipe here.
There are some great events taking place in Paarl in the coming days and weeks. See highlights below or for more events taking place in the Winelands check out our Events and Entertainment page.
Stay informed on the very latest weather by checking out our ShowMe weather forecast, 7-day summary and the coming 24-hours detailed by the hour, updated every hour.

According to the latest Dams Report outflows exceeded inflows over the week – stored water volume fell from 38.5% to 36.9% of capacity. The water usage rate climbed versus the previous week.
