A Good Haar Day

Yet another migraine morning for me today and wee Elisa had a horrid night with fever – I tell ya, we’re all glad here it’s the weekend! The Haar is in this morning – that’s the sea fog that envelopes the Firth of Forth and the surrounds. It’s really thick and visibility is about 10 […]

Week 2 – Christmas is over

Christmas is over. And as per tradition here on the 5th or thereabouts most people pulled down their Christmas tree and decorations and dumped the tree next to their bin for collection by the council. I have two issues with this. The first is that, well look at that tree – so much green left […]

When I first arrived in Ireland I knew nothing about the place except for what I’d seen on the news or […]

Useful Links for Snow in Ireland

A few useful links I’ve come across for weather related stuff in Dublin. Irish Met Office is a reasonable site. The HIRLAM model is very accurate at predicting where and when snow will fall within a 24 hr period. Click on ‘Nedbor’ Watch passenger planes depart from/arrive at Dublin airport here. Excellent radar featuring flight […]

Drenched!
