Good trip! Say 'hi' to snow from me - it's been freakin' years.

I know southern Ireland is mild, but really that mild?

We don't get snow every year over here on the edges of East Anglia, but it's nice when we do, if only as a change from rain.

(Last winter was unusual by recent standards - we had two different cases of snow lying for days, one back really early at the end of October, the other really late running into the start of March.)

We get snow in the 'mountains' sometimes. Not in Cork though. Last year there were two little flurries of snow but nothing that settled on the ground. We used to have a sub tropical microclimate; we have bigger palms on some of our coasts than they have in proper tropical places. Sadly with the shift in climate at the moment we seem to be changing to a submarine climate with astonishing quantities of rain and very little sun and so many of the lovely plants and exotic trees hat flourish here are dying (drowning).

w'en ah were a kid..... Mum used to wake us up and dress us and throw us out into the garden to play in the snow - if and when it occasionally snowed - cause it would be gone in the morning.

I force my embarrassed and chilly kids out to catch snowflakes if ever there is a flurry because it doesn't stay on the ground at all.

Have a good trip, and say hi to the Pacific for us.

Have a marvellous trip - stay safe and well.

Remember keys, wallet, brains (in case of international travel passport) - everything else is negotiable.
