Nice bit of snow, from Navan to Mountmellick, back in 2017, March 27th to be precise. As I recall from my commute.
Right behind an artic at Trim when it shimmied on the heavy fast falling snow, then quivered and BANg over it went onto its roof, the full length of it down into a field.
Lots of slagging and laughing before we departed Navan that evening on our commutes. I was driving a quite sporty GT with 235 low profiles. That lacked bite. But got home. Actually maybe it was the 26th and I took a snow day on the 27th. I think it was still blocking the fast lane on the M6 Kilbeggan to Kinnegad the following day again. Found out later that a woman had died in a freak crash in Navan that evening as that blizzard fell. And it was blizzard-like. It was ferocious and sudden.
Agree with the Op, about this potentially catching people by surprise. Even seasoned weather freaks. What many want, and what Nature instead serves up, are often at odds.
