Spring 2018: General Discussion

Emmm. Where to start.

It's going to be an 'unseasonable' start to the season

Lads sorry to talk about a thaw after this snow, but after 2 days of constant heavy streamers and the potential of this storm later, im all snowed out now.

When do ye expect a thaw, and do ye think it'll be rapid or slow, im hoping slow, because i'd be worried about flooding here if its the other.

It will be a slow thaw. I'd love if we kept on to -12 uppers or below, but it's not going to happen. If there is a reload of cold we will still see a gradual thaw due to the stronger sun. We need exceptional cold- which we have currently - to prevent a widespread thaw, sadly, one way or the other, we will lose that through the weekend.

Its bucketing snow here nearly non stop since tuesday evening, had a brief respite yesterday morning for about 3 hours but since then its been snowing, have to admit, while i enjoy the snow, and the kids love it, i have had enough now, just want it to stop.

Is it ok to post here about a longing for nice dry bright mild weather that spring fills me with hope of delivery. This cold is miserable too cold to go out to dangerous to get to work country closed down and heating bill rising.

I have managed to get around it. I drove on untreated roads to and from work. If you wrap up well you can go out in it. Hopefully it continues well into March.

If it means a good Summer then yes please. If not, then it can get lost.

To be honest the last 2 weeks have been grand here in Leitrim. Cool but DRY and sunny(ish).
Spring bulbs in flower. Looking sad at the moment.

The land was drying out but God knows what will happen after the thaw.

Agree about the main general event thread. Ugly looking brute of a thing.

Well it won't be very mild next week on current guidance. A gradual thaw, but more snow is possible later in the week. We will have our one day of Summer, don't worry

Like it doesn't even need to be fantastically warm for me to consider it a great Summer. The best of Summers to me are those with nice sunny days with pleasant temperatures around 20c like 2010 or 2014. However, I wouldn't complain about a July 2006 or 2013!
