A good slap and a toe in the arse is the way to handle that complaint.  Attention seeking gobshites.
Give cyclists plenty of room.  It's the rules I tells ya!

I think the anticipated damage, damage assessment and clean-up is the issue for tomorrow, no?

The auld fella used to talk about Debby all the time. Haystacks flying off over the hill, bridges being washed away and so on.
Debbie does Dungloe.

it is going to be windy for the rest of the week, but more your normal wind.

I imagine schools remain closed as some roads will be blocked with trees etc and other schools will have no power.
They probably could have opened the city schools no problem, but then you'd have a whine.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Power just back here, at least for the moment. Was out for 5 hours or so.  Was hairy enough there for a while, a lot of fences and shed roofs damaged, but no major stuff here. A lot of trees down alright, but i actually think the storm of 2014 was probably as bad or worse.

Was it really necessary to close the schools today? Saying that, I won't complain about getting a few days off.

Down here yes. It would have been very dangerous for anyone out in that, let alone School buses on country roads.

Much ado about nothing here in Mid Monaghan.. thankfully

I closed up the business about 3PM, not cause I felt we needed to but that everyone else on the street had closed and didn't think I'd have anyone in. Have re-opened now in the hope that we'll have a few strays in as I know our competitors up the street won't be opening again tonight :)
