Storm Emma is here, the Red Weather warning is in full effect and the majority of stores in Dublin are shutting their doors from 2pm onward so that staff can head home to safety.
Despite there being all day yesterday and this morning to stock up on as much bread and wine as any one needs (okay apart from bread, there's a shortage crisis there), there's always a few last stragglers...
People are actually QUEUING in and outside shops and supermarkets to get whatever last minute food bits and bobs they need.
We've a feeling this is all 100% beer runs. Admit it.
"Empty shelves but full of chat and laughter"
It feels like Christmas Eve as the queue stretches around Centra #Sandyford. Empty shelves but full of chat and laughter as we await the dual between #StormEmma and the #BeastFromTheEast! pic.twitter.com/taEr3ELclY

Someone just walked by our queue with a litre of milk and everyone freaked. “Where did you get that?” “Are there any plain chocolate digestives let?” “Where are all the EGGS?”
I live here now.

THE CITY HAS GONE MAD.
And we're loving it. Stay safe and warm you bread-loving booze hounds!
