Tornado Warning!!

Ireland is under a Category 3 Tornado warning today 14th April. Western Coastal Counties are most likely to be affected (there's only a 5% chance!!)

Be careful out there folks.

That's mad, never thought about Ireland and tornados! Take care though.

That said, I know we occasionally get them over here too. Never seen one though.

Was almost blown over on Main Street in Leixlip this afternoon. No tornado, though. Am still in County Kildare and not on the Yellow Brick Road.

Hubby was actually blown over in a supermarket carpark today.

I've more ballast and consequently was more stable!!

Blimey, that must have been one strong gust Bean!

I've been blown by the wind too into a road, luckily it wasn't a busy one! And I consider myself not a light weight.
