The Big Freeze ( Sunday 10th January )

Big falls of snow have been hitting much of Dublin this evening.

8cm of lying snow here with bigger drifts, best snow i have had for probably ever.

Snow expected to become more widespread across Ireland during the morning and afternoon.

Take care and make the most of a very rare event.

Literally tried to post this as the last thread was closed - this is the 4cm which have fallen in D13 since this afternoon, on top of what was already lying (maybe another 5 or 6 cm).



The sky is eerily bright over to the west as well, I'm guessing because of the streetlights reflecting off the lying snow and the white snowclouds. Amazing sight.

On the UK warnings it says there could be power cuts due to snow turning to ice on power lines.

Snow at it's deepest here in Dublin 15 since it all began, all foot prints and tyre tracks now totally obscured. -1.5c

Is this the 'event' or is the best yet to come?
