Snowy Ireland

I think it will take a while for Ireland to get back to normal after Storm Emma.  

The snow could be gone for now but it is still very cold and patches of dirty whiteness are still visible everywhere. A lot of people suffered in many ways, local businesses had to close, suppliers did not deliver, the country was literally at a standstill  for a few days.

Our water is not completely back even though we managed to have showers yesterday!! Believe me it is the best feeling in the world to be clean!!

One thing I noticed is that snowmen sprang up everywhere in every garden like an army, people managed to see the bright side of things to get through it all!!  Doesn't that show a great spirit and a wonderful sense of humor? Irish people a well know for that I believe.

So to finish on a brighter note, here are some snowy shots from Ireland, prettier and nicer than my previous post which was a bit sinister and had an end of the world feel to it. 

Enjoy Snowy Ireland ;-)
