Little Irelanders.

Enjoy this snowy weather!

Don't get me wrong Wheelie - I'm enjoying the weather - see my last blog.

I walked a foreign woman to the DART yesterday who had been waiting for a bus for over 2 hours in the cold. She was heavily pregnany and carying 3 large bags of shopping. When I found her she was crying out of frustration, unaware that Dublin Bus had cancelled services. I don't blame Dublin Bus - the roads were dangerous. I just couldn't help wondering if perhaps we could do things a bit better?

Maybe the Gulf stream is giving up blowing our direction because of Global Warming .
We might be in for month's of cold snowy weather every year from now on . We'll just have to adapt to it .
There will be great opportunities of snow plough sellers and house insulators !

No you can't cope. It's clear that a little bit of snow causes havoc - stuff that would be considered a nice winters day in many countries results in a near state of emergency here.

When I got off the plane last night in Dublin I laughed - in Toronto it would be considered a lovely night/day.

In fairness, there was A LOT more than 2 cm of snow at the Airport. But proper de-icing stuff, two snow plows and pilots and ground crew used to snow would have meant very little delays in Dublin and certainly would have avoided airport closure.

And don't get me started on the fact that there were no taxis or buses servicing the airport!

Thankfully the aircoach eventually started running. Our driver was Polish so I felt I was in good hands. I would have been nervous if the driver was Irish.

this was an uncharacteristic fall of snow. the city centre is grand but the suburbs are lethal. safety is paramount.

Just read your blog - the photos are lovely!
I think we could definitely manage the situation better, but it is unusual and we so rarely have to worry about weather. I'd be concerned if we over-reacted to this cold snap or failed to organise things a bit better the next time it happens.

By the way, snow boots are a big help in this weather. Presuming places like the Great Outdoors haven't run out of stock, you can pick up a nice pair for only fifty quid.

Yes, the Gulf Stream has permanently shut itself off. We are all going to die. Anyone here seen the film The Day After Tomorrow ? It's nothing compared to the -230 degree temperatures that are on their way here.
