    Red Alert warning just gone out. The weekend has started! Adios work!!

    My husband left for Clonmel around 6.30am and the roads were bad until he got to Mooncoin but grand after that. He was home again around 11am and said the roads were fine all the way back.

    Someone bought 20 loaves in Tesco yesterday. I stocked up over the weekend and picked up a few more bits on Monday.

    The main roads around the city are fine i was out today and it was very quiet,20 loaves? seriously what is someone going to do with that amount of bread this whole bread shortage is really crazy


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,990 ✭✭✭ longshanks


    The credit union was closed earlier, anyone know when they plan on opening again?
    Some factories are closing too, out of concern for their employees, and some are refusing to shut which says a lot too.

    to be fair, i am hearing stories of some charities buying up bread around the place, which is understandable, but theres no need for individuals to be panic buying

    I was driving from Kilcohan to New Ross at 4:45 this morning. The roads in Waterford were really bad, seemed like they hadn’t been gritted or salted at all. As soon as I got over the bridge those roads were grand.

    stay safe everyone, heard of a lot of people having mini breakdowns and lots of friendly folks are on hand to help anyone in troube.

    if i see one more bloody meme or someone making a bread joke on facebook ill scream. Its not the end of the world just a bit of a snow and we just have to stay indoors for a while for our own safety if people want to go to the pub etc they can

    Eistech have always treated their employees really bad, what more would you expect of such a company. I hope no one working there gets hurt going home.


  • Registered Users Posts: 34,100 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009

    its not as mighty as it once was


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,525 ✭✭✭✭ Poor Uncle Tom


    No, indeed it's not....


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,442 ✭✭✭ mooseknunkle


    To be fair to the companies they are only going on when a red alert is announced B&L and Eistech probably have well over 2000 employees between them thats a lot of people to pay for a snow day,the roads in the city arent bad now but who knows whats going to happen in the next few days they might have to stay closed for longer than anticipated.

    many of the roads are lethal enough now, they ll more than likely be much worse tomorrow and on friday. it would be best if everyone closed now until maybe saturday. having people move around now is simply dangerous.

    Totally agree with you and i think there is a red warning now for Waterford from 8pm to 12 tomorrow


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,990 ✭✭✭ longshanks


    B&L employees are being sent home now.
