    As of noth dublin ... nothing :(
    Hey not saying i want to see things blowing off roofs or anything :P but as of right now, no rain and only a bit of wind.
    Have to say tho, doesnt seem to be a lot of traffic on the roads. Back of my house is a main road. Not much activity.

    same... only a slight bit of wind in dublin... hopefully we'll have a lot of activity tomorrow... need an excuse not to wash the car and just let the wind and rain do it :pac:


    what road is behind you ? im sure i can make some activity on it........... im bored and armed with a honda civic :cool:

    Just checked the Kilkee weather station and its recorded winds of 39.1kts SSW at 2:04am and it really does feel as if its getting worse,

    The barometer is reading 969.9 and falling slowly…. Its going to get a lot worse before she calms down,

    Sounds like my roof is going to blow off at the moment

    Just checked again and the wind is reading 44.3kts at 02:19

    No need to worry until you see a cow and an old lady in a rocking chair swirling around in the wind.

    Situation in Carlow is dire.

    Nothing to do with storm, however.

    Bit of wind up here in Dublin alright, nothing to write home about. Was due to give birth yesterday.. so hoping the drop in barometric pressure might help! Could be a load of rubbish but at the same time so could the hurricane... still something to talk about.

    Turned on trashy tvam at 8am to hear more about todays bad weather. 10 mins I had to sit through it before they mentioned the weather!!!!

    I'll never get those minutes back :(

    Quite blustery ere but no biggy.

    Its fairly howling here right now in Dublin City Centre.

    I was very surprised at the amount of cyclists on the road this morning. It was well documented on the news & internet there was going to be gale force winds & still this morning I saw plenty of hardy folk cycling into town

    Madness!

    I was in Connecticut for Hurricane Irene a few weeks ago. Luckily it had eased off a lot to winds of about 80 - 90mph. Still made **** of the trees, branches everywhere, some larger trees fell on a few houses. Not a pleasant experience.

    Hopefully the winds won't do too much damage over here.

    Lots of large branches and bits of trees down in Limerick, and there's a fence panel sent flying that might need replacing....

    .....but FFS guys.....compared to the damage done in Japan & other places when they have actual extreme weather, we're getting off VERY lightly!
