under a white blanket

we in Ireland are currently experiencing a total shut down of normal life, as we are totally under snow! so much snow! Since Saturday, it has been snowing on and off, never really melting, and just freezing.

The airport is now shut, which is kind of scary! But mostly, i kind of love that Ireland is so unprepared for these kinds of events, it has a sort of war-time, emergency feel, and actually it does make people talk to each other and help each other out. What really amazes me is how many people own sleighs! and moon boots..!

anyway, really nice start to the Christmas season, people have no option but to sit down and have a mince pie!

This is from last year...
