Snow in KZN, trip cancelled

I left Hilton this morning to visit Three Tree Hill Lodge near Spioenkop Nature Reserve between Bergville and Ladysmith. I did not get very far, as I was directed off the N3 and sent back after only 45kms, a little way past Howick. At the Balgowan exit the N3 was closed due to snow and ice on the roads, and the R 103 was closed too so there was no way I was able to reach my destination.

N3 between Howick and Balgowan

There was snow on the side of the road just passed Howick, and the hills towards the Berg were all covered in white.
