Beast from the east

So Ireland has been hit by a big storm at the moment. Officially its called storm Emma but most of us call it the “Beast from the east”. Unfortunately we have been snowed in for the past 3-4 days. On the plus side I got days off work and time to work more on the projects I love to work on. Admittedly I haven’t spent much time on PhotoFlare or even my cool new project I started on. Most of my time has been spent on my PS4 because generally I don’t get time on it during the week or im too tired to play it.

Its a very strange time of year to have this much snow around us. Every time I make a trip to the shop the shelves are empty and bare. Getting essentials such as milk and bread is now a challenge. Even today about 30 people including myself were staring eagerly as the truck delivering the milk to the shop had just arrived. The delivery man started handing out the milk to each of us one by one as we surrounded him like a bunch of milk starved zombies. Its moments like this that are very usual and I find it funny how unprepared we are for such weather conditions.

The snow is starting to thaw out now thankfully. It shouldn’t be too long until I can get out and about again. Cabin fever hasn’t quite hit me yet but definitely I will be out meeting people/doing outdoor things as soon as this all clears up. It was fun while it lasted but definitely I can’t wait to get back to normality.
