Snowy daffs

In the west of Ireland, snow is not common. And we’ve had quite a bit already this winter. This afternoon, we had a dusting of unusually, soft powdery snow.

Usually, it is damp snow perfect for making snowmen. We’re told we will get more snow tomorrow night as Storm Emma makes her way from the Bay of Biscay and hits some cold Siberian air. Blizzard like conditions are expected in the east and south, where snowfall has already been heavier. The last time we had a blizzard was 1982, so it is really not something we are used to! Keep safe everyone.

    Wow, hope you and those in the forefront stay safe and warm. We’re used to such things, but it is difficult when there aren’t measures in place to deal with such things. These freaky weather systems all over the planet are worrisome!

      They certainly are – it’s been a weird winter Eliza, and I suspect this will be our future – weird weather.

    I thought of you when I saw the weather forecast this morning! It hasn’t been as bad in my part of Wales as had been forecast – and it looks as if we might miss the worse of it this evening, also.

    Have fun, enjoy, and keep warm and safe 🙂
