Literally freezing in the midlands - the bin lid is frozen shut already. Roads will be like glass in the morning. Not expecting much in the way of precipitation though.

Was driving from Kerry to cork an hour ago. The county bounds was spectacular. Like something from a Christmas card. Lots of snow falling.

If the one promised to us in the earlier model runs had actually happened, it would have been talked about for years. I love a good storm but maybe we were lucky really that it didn't happen...

My thoughts exactly. 50 knots mean wind speed (at inland locations) could have transpired - not a very nice prospect!
