If ever there was a time to worry about getting frostbit, it's today.
As Storm Emma and the 'Beast From The East' collide and the eastern half of the country wakes up to snowy and icy conditions (and lots of lucky souls get to "work from home"), both #StormEmma and #BeastFromTheEast have been trending online alongside #Snowmageddon as the Irish do what they do best and take the absolute piss.
We haven't seen this much weather-related glee since Storm Ophelia.
If the Gaiety Panto isn't called Beauty and the Beast From the East this year, I'm emigrating.

Got 5 minutes of snow in #Dublin8 earlier, ran to spar to get 10 sliced pans just in case.

Went to the shop just to buy bread for this #StormEmma. After I pay, cashier says "Have a good time"
Aye it's gonna be fucking wild. Me and my bread

My faith in humanity has been restored. Just saw a woman become hysterical because there was no bread left in the shops so a lovely man came over, handed her a pack of cream crackers and told her to ‘get a grip’. #StormEmma #beastfromtheast ireland ðŸ‡®ðŸ‡ª
