Then, when the aforementioned weather of biblical proportions never happens and turns out to be little more than a storm in a teacup we love a good moan about the fact that it never happened and how the forecasters never get it right. As a nation we also really hate the snow don't we and we reeeally really love a good moan if it actually does snow!
Right now there's a Status Yellow snow and ice weather warning from Met Eireann for the whole of the country. We're in for about 3 centimeters, apparently "all areas are at risk" but fear not, the warning is only valid until 11pm on Thursday. I wonder what happens if it does snow and it's still around at 11.15pm on Thursday? Are we allowed to moan that there was no valid weather warning?
Final point, and this blog was genuinely never meant to be a sales pitch, I just fancied having a rant about the weather - if you live in a remote area or have steep hills to navigate and it does actually snow, it might be worth your while checking out our snow socks. They really really do work amazingly well and we're the best price anywhere online or in-store.
But more importantly, embrace the snow people! build a snowman, fall off a sledge, fire a snowball at your mate and remember what it was like to be a kid again for just a few moments :)
