Dublin

Snow no-show

Once again we curse the day we bought a house this close to the sea. Everyone else1 gets several feet2 of snow. We get blizzards that melt on impact leaving nothing but a slight scum of slush in their wake. Hmmph.

Also of course the entire country grinds to a halt, infrastructure collapses, and businesses close for the day because it's a bit cold and wet. But we expect that.

Still, there were a lot of extremely happy kids with snowmen and sledges on the news, so at least someone is having fun!
