The problem is not so much people saying it was a non-event in their area so much as the people for whom nothing outside their immediate line of sight actually exists saying that because it was a non-event for them, it was a non-event everywhere. Those people are annoying and apparently lack object permanence.

Edit; mind you, I'd certainly be more interested in the post regarding a house being blown inside out than I would be by a breathless post saying nothing's happened!

Generalising much???
Over sensitive much???? I referenced my area, and the conditions in my area! I never said it was the same nation wide!

Just picked up in the last 30 mins in Dundalk. Not crazy, but still not looking forward to popping out to get my lunch.

Absolutely pelting down in Wexford the last hour or two. Rain more of an issue here then the wind. Flooding at the driveway gates.

The disaster junkies here must be very disappointed with this. A wet and windy day is all it was. People here jizzing themselves and circle jerking about how severe it was going to be.

Lads giving out about warning, it totally depends on where you are. Last night this morning was nowhere near Ophelia but power and phone lines were down round here along with trees on some roads. A lot of trees are weakened after previous storms and the drought this year so it won't take much to knock em and generally they do a lot of the damage or disruption

Mod(s). Can you please get the thread back in line with technical weather discussions. There are numerous people posting bravado comments with no real input and who likely live in regions which were not subject to severe weather. Many seem unable to stop themselves from posting rubbish.

Ye it wasn't windy or windy enough for you where you were, so what!!! It's a warning system, not enforced martial law

Personally, I'm pleased I took precautions with bins, kennels etc in garden and secured them in the shed . I also told my Dad's home help to not come in to us at 8 am this morning. She lives coastally and would have to leave her house at 7 am, when it was still quite wild.

It may be a wet and windy day now. But it was pretty wild overnight. I'd rather have the best information I can get and decide for myself what if any precautions to take. I'm relieved, not disappointed.
