Wintery Weather Continues

Robin Red Breast in the Snow

Robin Red Breast in the Snow

Today it looked as though snow was going to fall but it passed over to land on Dublin and further down the coast. Checked with Conor's school in Waterford and yes they were opening checked yes buses running, on the way to leave Conor to the bus weather report on M9 being very bad but Conor was going on the train so off he went - wrong decisin he eventually got off the bus over four and a half hours later missed his train by nearly 2 hours and had to walk to a friends college house to stay the night. Doesn't look like we'll be gardening for a while and no work as roads too bad for most people to travel to ride so roll on spring and summer weather as I'm getting depressed not being able to teach or be outdoors much too cold for my bones liking. Lucky I have plenty in the freezer as shops are fairly low on stock after seeing the veg shelves in Lidl when in to get tomatoes for soup. Lots of activity in the garden with birds had to buy some more food will have to see if I can head northwards for a bigger bag as very expensive in Monaghan town.

It is starting to get a bit worrying now with stock being depleted from shop shelves alright. Hope Conor didnt have too long a journey to his friends. I must try and get out and do a bit of a 'shop' today or soon.

The novelty is definitely wearing off this freezing spell--it can no longer be called a cold snap!

I heard on the radio this morning it is to last until end of March beginning of February!
