We've been in the grips of an hard stretch of winter weather with nearly a week of daily snow falls. Most unusually it hasn't been melting, but has just hung around getting deeper.
It has caused major disruption all over the east of the country, particularly transportation – roads and Dublin airport being the most prominent. The worst, personally, has been the roads. Last week it was snowing every morning when I woke up and I had to crawl down the back lanes where I live to reach a major road to get to college.
It finally broke on Friday, which I had off, and yesterday was clear though the roads were only half thawed and very slippery.
This morning the snows came again. At least it's melting on the same day.
For the minute it's clear, though there may be more snow in the morning. I'll keep you posted.
