    Drove from Waterville to Wicklow today and went through a range of weather and temperature.
    Woke up to snow on mountains above and on hills lower down surrounding Lough Currane which I've never seen before in APril
    Coldest spot was in the oddest place. Coastal drive on either side of Kell's Bay on the Ring, temperature dropped below freezing briefly, very heavy snow and I was driving in slush. Mountains completely white back inland and to low levels in the Behy Valley. Couldn't see the Reeks but they had about 24 hours of very heavy snow on top of some from two days back.
    Driving sleet on the pass into Limerick and temperature rose steadily from average of 2 in Kerry to 5 all the way to Portlaoise where it got up to 9 and I saw the sun. By the time I hit m50 it was 12..... so 13 degree difference.
    I've had that several times driving East/West. Don't ever remember it other way around with Waterville as end point.
