I am embaressed to admit this but I have a major case of 'sour grapes' goin on atm.
On the East Coasts biggest snow day in 23 years Bray Seafront area accumulated 1 inch of hail/ Graupel combo in a half hour shower at 10am. The resulting slush has 'soaked' up what little 2-3 minute showers of hail and graupel we got on and off the rest of the day. ie. Our slush got bulked up. We have had about 30 minutes total in showers today whereas Greystones on the other side of Bray head about 2 miles away has had 30 minutes without falling snow today. Bray has been under a gap in Cloud Streams all day long.

What we have is enough to be massively inconvenient to people but not enough to be worth a play in nor is it aesthetically pleasing to look at.

If this is all Bray can hope for for the rest of this cold period then I would prefer it were gone.

PS. I recognise that as an adult this level of sour grapes and frustration and resultant bad mood and snappyness all because I didn't get the types or amounts of snow I wanted is symptomatic of addiction and I will soon be seeking professional help.

Epic journey on the way home from Baggot Street to Stamullen. It took me 3 hours by train/walking. The car got stuck wheel spinning on the bridge over the motorway just before Stamullen. A night in shining armour came to my rescue and reversed it down the hill to get a good run at it. I'm not going out in that tomorrow. Well maybe to make snow people with little people.

What are the chances of getting from Stamullen to Portmarnock on Saturday for my brother's wedding. Then onto Summerhill House Hotel in Enniskerry for the reception.

A nightmare all round.

Some serious lightning flashes going on far out to sea from here.
Roads like ice rinks nothing moving for miles, the utter silence only broken by the very distant and gentle rumble of thunder coming in off the sea.
Absolutely beautiful evening, slight chill in the air at -3.9
