OK its COLD. as to the weather? snow? Look we were threatened with a hurricane that turned out to be a stiff breeze earlier this year. I grew up on the Pennines in the UK I know that any clouds full of snow are going to dump most of their load on the 5000+ ft climb they need to do just to get over those before they get here.

Standing against the wall ready to be shot but I really doubt there is much for the vast majority of visitors to worry about. (I have made sure the 4x4 starts just in case)

Hardly worth it just yet Michele. Problem is i'm old enough to remember having to clear over a foot of snow off the drive so my dad could get the car out and get to work when I was a kid, couple of inches doesn't impress that much.

Looks a bit worse over the east they had the camera crews up on Sally gap showing a full 4 inch fall. My cousin over above Newhey UK has about 18" and a blizzard blowing. no excuse for them the farm has to keep running, cattle & Sheep can't eat through the snow so bales have to be taken out for them.

Dublin Bus's have been cancelled tomorrow and nobody knows whats going to happen yet in real time.

Well we have snow, nearly as much as we had in January and we had a bit of a breeze, not as much as February. There are roads round here that are closed due to drifts, this grainy type of snow just gets blown about. Now had they carried on gritting yesterday over in Dublin and the likes the roads wold probably be clear there now, there were some high winds late last night across there but nothing like those we get off the Atlantic in the west. Never mind. just hoping we can get to the shops tomorrow, that mile and half onto the main road is going to be fun..
