National emergency dudes broadcasting live on RTE’s One O’Clock News stating there will be no buses in Dublin tomorrow, no Darts/Luas from around Midday, and we’re all to be home from 4pm until Friday afternoon. Things just got serious… And there I was fretting about the teenagers launching snowballs at the 4-year-old.
As the country will effectively in lockdown from 4pm tomorrow, no one should be in a car, but – if you must – here are some driving tips from CarsIreland.ie
Top tips for driving in Snow
1) Slow Down
2) Leave a bigger gap between you and the 🚗 in front
3) Put Lights on
4) Plan for the journey taking longer
5) Have blankets, Drink and food in the 🚗 in case you are stuck.
6) Have a charger for phone
If in any doubt see tip 1 🖒

The people at the National Emergency Coordination Center are saying: If people need to travel they need to consider how they’re going to be home by four o’clock tomorrow (Thursday, March 1st).”
To keep abreast of things as they happen, here are some helpful social media/sites to keep an eye on – assuming we all keep our internet connection…
Keep safe, people, and remember to stock up on the three F’s – Food, Fuel and Fluids!
