I'd say it's best to wait to inflict maximum infuriation. Try and include something like "can't see what all the fuss is about" in your message.

Tried to take a photo but none are worth posting, they just look like little smudges, it’s all gone a bit grey and drizzly here. So unusual to see so many big boats tucked in behind st John’s Point.

The incoming rain, ontop of yesterdays very heavy showers, and last weeks two days of very heavy rain. March is already very wet, loads of fields under water here in Cork atm.

An Orange Alert in the NW is like a general Wet and Windy day elsewhere

We get storms here that last 10 minutes in a shower that would be ridiculous to warn about

thread will kick off late tomorrow evening as the storm exits the country,should i hang my clothes out,iv got a flight to take,should i cancel my hand gliding lesson,with suburban wheelie bin updates and frightening gusts coming down peoples chimneys in cork,traumatised cats and dogs,most exciting part is the post mortem,sure what was all that about etc,finished off with met bashing and arguing over the warning system.

Looks a solid Orange into Donegal- think even the hardy folk there will notice this one. Inland gusts in excess of 60 knots

The tone on this forum has been abysmal lately. Can we not just talk about the weather?
