Can we LIVE?
If you live in Leinster or the midlands you might have noticed your commute to work was especially chilly today.
Thanks to a full-on winter cold front, there was snow and sleet in various parts of the country this morning, lasting around 30 minutes in total. This is Ireland though, so there was still enough rain to prevent the snow from sticking. BOO.
Some people got excited at the thought of a White November.

Others were miffed that they had to deal with the bitter cold of snow, but without a full-on white landscape as a reward.

Don’t think you’re needed in Dublin to shovel the snow quite yet Mr Plow. It definitely helps with the festive spirit though pic.twitter.com/Nq5AUeC7IM

And some folks – the true spoilsports – were annoyed at the very mention of “snow” on their social media feeds.

#Snow has arrived in Dublin!! Country about to enter full lockdown mode any minute now, with Halfords sold out of snow chains by lunchtime

It wasn’t all bad news though – the snow did stick in certain higher parts of the county. Hurrah!
