Storm Ophelia.. She Came, She Conquered!

Yep… she hit Ireland with a vengeance! Can you imagine a red alert warning for a whole country? Well, it was totally justified! OK, I know Ireland isn’t massive but the storm was! At one stage, it covered the island of Ireland totally…

I began taking photos out of the bedroom window at 10h22 when the wind was just a breeze and the sun still shining. At that stage the storm was already raging along the southern coasts…

I kept taking photos… the wind getting stronger and it beginning to loud over… at 10h31

The first signs of rain at 13h16

The power goes at 15h22…

The storm raged on for many hours… even when the radio suggested the worst had passed Arklow we were still grimly hanging on!

So, what do you do while waiting out the storm? Me… I grated apples (before the power went)… to try a simple cider recipe! If this brew has kick I’ll call it Ophelia’s Magic Muti!

So… when we had enough of Ophelia cabin fever we snuck down town for a quick look. WOW!! Any yes, we were at a very safe distance!

      Masief! Gulikkig was die skade min. Die meeste skade hie by ons was in een van die karavaan parke! Die see het daai groot “mobile homes” naaste aan die strand erg rond gegooi!
      Ons het niks skade gahad nie! Ons kom van PE af… gewoond aan ‘n bietjie wind! 😉
