Freezing Weather Discussion - Widespread Snow Tonight/Tuesday

Continue here

Hail/Snow here near Malahide. Place is as white as New Years.

This will continue for at least as far as we can say (which is very far).


Snow tonight and early morning. At least a dusting. Probrably 3 - 5cm's generally.

Yes, indeed it looks very similar to new years out there. Of course the Ice hardly melted so everything settled. Going to be dodgy in the morning (if it was not dodgy enough in our locale).

Yellow Walls Road is a death trap! Did you see the crash there near Texas Lane this evening?

No but im very familiar with the problems on Yellow Walls. It was like walking a road in Siberia yesterday and not much better today. Cars skidding and not moving at the same time, pedestrians falling etc. It's very bad. The council are muppets.

They're a damn sight better that Dublin CIty Council though apparently. There was a yoke on Newstalk earlier about how noticeable the FCC area was because it had actually BEEN gritted. We're talking main routes here too.

Yeah Old Yellow Walls road was bad too up near Centra, and Centra's carpark was a complete icerink all of yesterday. The carpark in Airside was treacherous today to the point that it needed gritting or someone was going to kill themselves on it. Outdoor carparks C and D in the pavilions were closed also, so traffic there utterly mental and expect worse tomorrow morning and all day, all round as a result of tonight's new covering.

Im telling yeh now FCC are a bunch of retards. How long have I and others been saying here that this was going to happen? That it was common knowledge that very cold weather was coming? Never mind that though - the Yellow Walls is still not gritted. It remains the death trap it was yesterday and will be worse in the morning. God knows what will happen this morning but there will be alot of frustrated, angry people - I can gaurantee that.

Waiting for snow is like waiting for a bus, kettle to boil, bread to toast etc, seems like it will never come. When I was a kid, always wished for snow during xmass, over hols, running up to return to school, hopeful entire village would be trapped in by heavy snow. Snow never really came during those times, then one year I wished it never came, I wanted to go out fishing, that year I never saw so much snow. Anyone who grew up during 80's will know what I am talking about.

Most if not all years after that, I returned hoping for snow and always have since then, so far it never came like it did in 80's

This year I don't want it, trying to move house, frozen roads and all sorts is holding me back. I have to finish move this week so sorry folks, don't want any snow my way. I am a bit worried now as this is first time since 80's I genuinely don't want any snow. Funny to see if Ireland does get hit by big snow after this kind of confession.

Watch out tomorrow, be safe, take time traveling to work.
