The rain in Dublin

Serious weather here yesterday lads take it easy out there, a lot of abandoned cars and crashes all over the city, flooding everywhere. And just to give you an idea of just how bad it is check these out, I am in tears laughing but its quite sobering aswell

In this one just look at how high up the door the water is coming in, its not just seeping under the door, its bad

Dundrum is a disgrace. A modern designed and built shopping centre should be able to withstand some localised flooding. Its a known flood area, they should have had pumps and water systems setup to deal with this.

Boo.

Normally i would smile at this, but as 2 people died i think its a bit inappropriate, just my opinion though. Also counting the millions in damages

Bear I don't he meant any harm (just a bit of Dublin Cark banter I think?)
I'm sure we'd all agree it was awful to hear of the deaths of those two poor youngsters.
So much mad stuff going on with the weather all over the world....

No harm was obviously intended. Of course everyone is sympathetic to the real occurences and when anyone is affected badly. The woman who died (in her forties/fifties) had been living here for about 12 years, her husband was coming over to join her from Christmas onwards.

feeling like a bear so

lads 2 lives lost which could have been avoided . watching oireahchtas/dail , FFS they are moaning about who was and wasnt told , one had loads of phones calls ... Imagine he had to do something and actually answer calls ... If I had known he was upset over the calls I would have rang him every 2 minutes for the last 2 days ... what a ******
