  1. Thanks Raindrops, it’s been an exciting afternoon/evening. Certainly beats paperwork hah. Making my way back home now with the hope of meeting the Meath cell en route. Any recommendations from any of the good folk on here as to where would be a good place to go next? What’s the chances of something supercellular appearing on the radars? Rarely get out for a chase as there’s rarely anything to chase so want to make the most of this.
  2. Was doing vat returns so soon as the storms started popping up I jumped in the car. Managed to stay under the Louth/Meath cell and got ahead of it as it moved offshore. The rainfall was intense with frequent flashes and some shotgun thunder. Managed to see one CG strike which was quite impressive. Currently sat at Blackrock, just south of Dundalk watching the storm as it rolls into the Irish Sea. Thunder was almost constant a while ago but currently very little now. Unfortunately didn’t see any lightning bolts as I’m on the periphery and can’t see through the rain/hail core. Might head back to Meath now and try intercept this next storm. Firs picture was taken in north west Meath, second here in Blackrock. Not the most photogenic structures. Happy hunting guys, hope you get your share too.
  3. Was driving to Blanchardstown on the M3 through this and it was certainly a shower from hell. Hail was very intense and managed to see a nice wee bolt of lightning. Despite the dreadful road conditions, there were still many a simpleton recklessly speeding along.
  4. Aye, similar scenario here around 5pm. Rain was torrential and wind was howling, and likewise it settled after about 5mins or so. Was installing huge 4sqm triple glaze glass units weighing roughly 200kg at the time. Only 3 of us doing the lift so was a struggle at times with the wind. Thankfully quite sheltered where we were. Rain was more of an issue with the suction cups slipping quite a bit.
  5. Maybe we’re been mislead with this warm signal....it’s been the case so far with the cold signal... .....yes,.. I know..
  6. You’re all welcome to join me if ya chip in a few bob for the hire
  7. That’s it!! I’m away out to rent a wood chipper and dance round the garden in the nip as the missus feeds aero-board into it.
  8. Tbh I’m starting to loose faith with the ongoing potential this winter. So far it seems to be one of eternal optimism with little to show. Thankfully we’ve the full month of February to go and we all know how quickly things can escalate once a signal establishes itself. Perhaps after Sunday’s slidergate I’ll have the patience to venture back into the Southern English...ah-em sorry the MOD thread for a more broad brush balanced outlook. For now, thanks for the update Mountain Shadow
  9. Seems to be weakening and fragmenting over the midlands. Is there possibility of reinvigoration as it begins to retreat south? Clutching at straws here hah!
  10. Raining here in NW Meath despite the radar showing all snow. My greatest concern was whether the front would come far enough north and now that it has it’s bloody rain!
  11. Like how you look up at the lamppost at 00:49.....just to be sure it’s really happening
  12. I’m very sorry to say Rochey, but this is one occasion where I hope the Dublin snow shield stays intact. Given that I’m working in Dublin today and Bray tomorrow, last thing I want to see is anything remotely resembling a snowflake next or near that god forsaken M50!! Hope you understand
