It was raining from the early hours. As we walked into town for 9 am Mass a river was running down the side of our street.
In Chamberlain Street the flood was lapping the pavement and covering two thirds of the road. We had to cross for the church, and Clare got a bootfull. Cars in town, driving in from the tops, had an inch of snow on their roofs
By 10 am it was cold with blue skies; the cold front had gone through.
