    I would imagine trucks will start getting through the motorways so the shops could be stocked back up tomorrow, if the drivers are allowed work

    Fair play to all the services that have worked hard to get the city and county up and running after the snow. Lot of volunteers as well as local agencies whose work should not go un-noticed

    Roads are driveable and walkable but there's snow built up everywhere so you have to take your time as pedestrians are walking on the road. Ardkeen stores car park is full of snow, they're doing their best to clear it but it's slow. Lidl car park alongside Ardkeen Stores is a bit cleared and open and they're still working on it. Tesco is open until 6pm and car park is relatively clear but still a lot of work to do, they're working away.

    Lots of cars still abandoned everywhere, lots of idiots stopping on the road (which is barely even one car width wide in some places) to let passengers out and pick people up, lots of pedestrians out walking. So everyone just be careful and courteous.

    Some parts of those roadbumps (ones which are material/plastic and not tarmac) seemed to have ripped up when they were ploughing the snow. A few patches taken up around the Ursuline School, and left dumped near the traffic lights by the inner ring road. Think there was one by Norris's corner as well.
    Hopefully can get them fixed soon, as there are some huge screws popping out of where they used to be.
    Unfortunately, our roads will have taken another pummelling after the snow and ice.

    I think they have all been fixed now there was one in cannon street and paddy browns road but of both them are fixed

    Feels kinda strange driving around in the sunshine and big mounds of snow and ice piled up everywhere,last week feels like a dream or something
