UPDATES at bottom of page.
I am very glad to have had the sunshine penetrate my body and mind last Sunday because it has prepared both myself and Mrs H for what we are now facing.
The above photo looks at my nearest neighbours house which can just be seen above and to the right of the yellow post.
The snowy road outside of our cottage with five inches of beautiful icing.
The boreen or lane opposite our front door.
What is expected from 4 pm tomorrow.
It is then that Storm Emma, from The Bay of Biscay, mingles with the Beast from the East
producing blizzard conditions of heavy snow and gale force winds in excess 100 kph.
Goodness knows what the chill force factor will be.
The people like us who live in the Province of Leinster and those who live in Munster have been told
to be in their homes by 4pm and remain there until there is a cessation of the conditions.
