Did a walk of a few paddocks. Even with the bad weather of the past few days there's growth there. Ground soaked very well. Greeness is very evident.
Today was a peach of a day. Currently 4c under a clear sky.

The first and last grazing is for the grass, the others are for the cow.

Yellow rainfall warning here as well.

Lovely day here, warm and sunny. All the sheep outside today for the first time but access back to the shed if they want.

Pissing rain here and ground soaking. Had a digger lined up to clear some whins and stuff but no go as ground too wet.
Is there an allowance on the March 1 deadline due to weather ?

Most people here do
It's usually reasonably accurate
He can get rain totals wrong,max wind gusts or amounts of snow but is fairly good at the overall weather type for the day or next few days
Its entirely a blend of models he is using so sometimes theres uncertainty, but he will say so if so
He is canada based so also sometimes lack of local weather variation knowledge here let's him down

I'm in the same boat here. You'd probably get it done but it's some busy body reporting it is the big fear. I know of someone getting a field tidied up with hedge cutter and saw. Field well inland from any road. Contractor working away happily till 2 garda appeared in the field.

There was more than a bit of tidying if there was both a hedge cutter and saw there. The regs are there for a reason. There a big difference between a lads trimming a hedge 5-6 days late and a lad clearing a field during the nesting season.

Regs are there for a reason, I know there are loads of them but you just have to work around them. I know it's a pain when you annex to carry out some work and the wether comes wrong that year to do it. But some lads no matter how good the weather will find a reason to disobey them.

I had hedges that had to be done this year. When the weather was marginal there end of January I got a lad in told him to avoid the very bad spots where it was extra wet. He got 90%done.

Red wind warning for Clare and Galway tomorrow and the rest of the country is upgraded to Orange.

Be careful out there tomorrow, folks.

I just came on to see had you that up.

It looks like Clare will get it rough and some in north Galway might be wondering what the fuss is about. And then there's a track from Clare to Dublin where it could be bad enough. And then the very south of wexford won't be the nicest either.

And all during daylight hours.
Kick a football in Clare and it might land in Dublin!!
