Dublin Airport took to social media yesterday to share a video three years on from when the infamous Beast from the East hit.
Irish people have a love affair with the weather. It's a constant talking point - be it good or bad out. I think it's safe to say that, as a people, we're fairly good at making conversation but throw in some extreme conditions and we're pretty much set for weeks on end.
I mean, the Beast from the East was three years ago and we're still talking about it, case in point.
Marking the anniversary of its arrival with a fairly wild looking video, Dublin Airport reminded us of what a Status Red snow warning actually encompasses.
"Today in 2018. This was what a 'Red Alert for Heavy Snowfall' looked like @DublinAirport #BeastFromTheEast"

A time that some seem to look back on with rose-tinted glasses, many of the comments claimed it was "a simpler time". Not so sure we'd want those conditions back in a hurry though...
