It wasn’t actually to bad today as opposed to yesterday. Windy and cold though there was a couple of showers this morning and one this evening about 5pm or after. Yesterday was a lot worse of a day in fairness. I much preferred the dry mild benign weather of Thursday.
Clonmel1000 is online now

Some nasty squally showers today in Galway city, not unlike microbursts. Made driving very interesting with lots of spot flooding.

Graces7, you must be well worn storms by now, I couldn't deal with it all :/

Hope you got your supplies in and by January you will have a nice and cold settled winter.

Rainy day in Cork, temps have gone up again after a windy cold day during the week.

Unseasonably mild and muggy again.

Well I am used to it... a decade on a small North Sea island.. Love it. Peace and privacy ..... this week though is unusual. We have had one postal delivery and four days cut off. But I am old and have no obligations or work commitments. Chose to be out here. There is a reality to life. an edge. I think that is why folk here love wild weather and snow?

Now something like "sheltered accommodation" would kill me very fast.

I have enough food stocks for about 3 months! especially for the cats!
