Apparently we here in Ireland will be slap bang in the middle of Storm Ophelia tomorrow.
Up to a few days ago we were pretty oblivious to whoever Ophelia was and whatever she was doing but it would appear she is not impressed by our ignoring her. She has turned red and tomorrow is calling by.
Oh my goodness the excitement! The whole country is now expert on tropical storms. Twitter has gone into meltdown and facebook is full of doom and gloom. We are being told the country can barely remember a storm like this. We must take it seriously, batten down the hatches, stay indoors and secure any bins and debris outside. We need to locate candles in case of electrical faults and all schools in the danger zones have been canceled.
“Ah, It’ll be grand.”
However, despite my laissez faire attitude I have been diligent in my preparations today and heeded every warning. I am confident we are well prepared here,
PJs…at the ready.
DVDs and Netflix…all sorted.
Food…we have chocolate.
Drink…wine in the fridge.
Fingers crossed it’ll not be as bad as predicted.
I’ll keep you posted.
