The Big Freeze continues ..

leave a comment »

The cold snap continues on and apparently the country is running out of road salt and grit !!

Just watched Environment minster John Gormly on the Six O Clock news explain that the Government hadn’t planned on the cold snap and didn’t order more grit over Christmas. They thought it would be over by now. He did of course during the interview pass the buck over to Dept of Transport. Supplies of Road salt/grit are likely to arrive after the freeze is over.

Surely we should be able to provide road salt/grit for ourselves without having to have the stuff shipped in ? The Governments’  obvious lack of any sort of preparation for the cold snap is typical of their policies in general.  So careful driving is the order of the day.

BBBrrr – The cold snaps sets in.

Just decided to write a little on the cold snap we are having. Was going to write a bit on the recent Budget but then again what do you except from Fianna fail or this stage the Greens ?  It was pretty nasty and once again everyone pays for Fianna fail being the developers party, looks like they will be plenty of Strikes in the coming year.

Anyway back to the weather and last night the temperature went to -5 or -6 degrees Celsius and they are saying tomorrow night could go down to -8   degrees. Lovely isn’t it, virtually all modes of transport have been effected. Still it looks like that postman in Bluestacks Mountains was right, we are looking at a ” White Christmas “. The small ones will love it.
