April & May, which are normally the driest months of the year, were wetter than average but yes July & August were much drier than normal. There was a good amount of rain in September but nothing compared to October. It was quite telling however that despite the large amount of rain, the local grassland was largely able to soak most of it up with not many standing puddles lasting long in fields in places you'd normally expect - even last Friday.

Different places had different experiences. Among the Met.ie stations Finner (not far from West Tyrone) had 2.5 times as much rain in October as September, but in Dublin September was unusually wet and October was slightly less wet. 

If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Weather causing havoc in England this week, airports closed all over the show, I was to drop family off at airport this morning, flights all cancelled, I'm happy enough as it would have cost me a fortune in London!!

How do the likes of Canada and other harder hit weather wise, countries do it?

It's easier when there's 4-5 months of the stuff year in year out.
You prepare for it.
Snow tires are mandatory in certain provinces - you're insurance is invalidated if you get in an accident and don't have them on.

Snow will cause problems anywhere, until you can clear it.
But there was no excuse for the delays here on Friday caused by -1C temperatures.

I get weather will prevent delay and disrupt but itís not like they didnít know it was going to happen?!

It seems a bit chilly in Ontario, Quebec, New England direction. It was alleged to be -31C in southern Ontario and that is on the cold side even there.

Could be another blast of snow later in the month

Absolute rubbish, there is a chance of a SSW but there's every possibility it won't affect our weather at all. No computer models can predict the weather with any degree if certainty more than 5 days in advance. These clickbait articles aren't worth the paper they are written on.
