God I cannot bear this.. We've decided not to drive up to Dublin but take the bus instead. Which leaves 3.45 from Galway. Which means we have to travel on icy back roads to get to the shagging bus! I hate this country's inability to prepare for these kinds of things. When we had ice and snow last winter, I kept hearing how it would most certainly happen again because that's the way our climate is changing. Did anyone take any notice? No, we were all too busy enjoying the roasting hot summer.
