Coldest March in decades. Coldest April in decades. Then we get the start of May with strong winds, showers and cold.
This photo ought to be a picture from a January storm in Dun Laoghaire harbor.
Instead it’s a Saturday in May. 49 knot winds, hailstones and cold. In case you don’t know, 49 knots of wind is a Force 10.
The official description for Force 10 says this;
“Trees are broken off or uprooted, saplings bent and deformed. Poorly attached asphalt shingles and shingles in poor condition peel off roofs.”
May. I’m reminded of that old TV program in Britain – “The Darling Buds of May”. They’d get their buds blown off this year.
