Snowing in Ireland

This is a fairly rare occurrence but it's just started snowing here in Longford (deep in the middle of Ireland).

If it sticks you can be sure I'll be taking some photos. I can't remember the last time I saw a good snow fall in Ireland, the mild country.

It used to snow more often when I was a kid, but our winters have gotten so much milder over the past 20 years. Last year there wasn't a hint of snow and it was so warm that many of our plants seemed completely confused as to whether they should start flowering or not.
