Day Three of the Beast from the East

More snowy photos…on the third day of the storm, I decided I would walk into work. Cycling was virtually impossible, and there was no public transit running: no trains, buses, trams, or even airplanes.

Many, many people in Dublin took this opportunity to build igloos

Out of curiosity, I explored around the Poddle again, comparing it with just a couple of weeks ago

The roads are nasty when they’re not plowed!

On a lot of back streets, few dared to try to drive

A lot of people walk down the street because the paths are so difficult to navigate

No one had even tried to clear any snow or drive in the neighborhood where I live

I had the following baffling conversation with my landlord. (He and his girlfriend just ate junk food, drank wine and rum, and watched movies for the duration of the storm.)
Me: Do we have any kind of shovel I can use?
Him: What do you want to shovel?
Me: Uhhh…the snow.
Him: Why would you do that?
Me: To…clear the path??
Him: No one else is doing it.
Me: Oh…kay…
