Battening Down the Hatches

Today was hot and sunny and lovely - but apparently armageddon is waiting in the wings.  Met Eireann says that tomorrow will bring: "a combination of high winds, heavy rainfall, abnormally low pressure and high tides will cause dangerous conditions in south Munster and east Leinster."

Cripes.  Apparently this will be weather of the sort not seen in Ireland since good old Hurricane Charlie in 1986.

I'm hoping this is one of the times when the forecasters get it very wrong, but just in case I went to Donabate and put things away, stacked chairs, moved plants into the poly, did my best to weigh down the cabbage nets and stake the sweetcorn and asparagus.

With any luck, we might escape the worst of it tomorrow.  Here's hoping!
