Really blustery in South Dublin now! Has been like this all night, the wind woke me up this morning and it’s still going

Nice lovely light white skies though, sun peaking through, looking out my window it seems everyone is driving a lot slower out of my estate then usual

I wonder will the county councils be gritting the roads so we can all get to and from work safely.

Better to be prepared for the snow or hail etc

No, any wintry precipitation will be infrequent and on high ground, no point whatsoever gritting widely in driving rain and storm force winds.

Regarding the split threads I feel more comfortable posting on a thread like this, some of the weather junkies can be very cranky. When they're left in a thread by themselves just watch, they will eventually turn on each other.

They are small an can get down into hedges and objects that block the wind because they are small there are many such sheltered places.

Thanks. It just went into Red Alert warning out here so no way going outside; safe as.. houses... could not open the door anyways.

Not sure if I have ever sat through a Red Alert out here! Sounds like thunder and deluges against the place.

Rescued one of the cats from sheer terrified hiding in the shed. another is still out there but will be with the feral
