Ireland braces for total shutdown as red weather warning issued for entire country


The country is facing total shutdown from 4pm today with people ordered to stay indoors, schools and colleges closed, rail and bus services halted, and motorists warned it would be “suicidal” to take to the roads.
The warning was issued as it was confirmed the “Beast From The East” and Storm Emma will clash directly over Ireland today. The Government said between 22cm and 28cm of snow will fall by tomorrow afternoon.

“We have not experienced blizzard conditions, 110km winds, since 1982, and the reports from that time indicate the serious and life-threatening conditions which may be posed from heavy snow and strong winds,” said Mr Hogan.

“Having considered the Met Éireann warning and the likely impact of the blizzard conditions, and for reasons of public safety, we are advising people should not venture out of doors when the red-level warning is in place.

“It would be suicidal to go driving in the conditions, in blizzard-like conditions. Do not be out there from 4pm."

Heads up any member of SAG-AFTRA.

My brother is a member and just go this notice:

SAG-AFTRA has been working for several months with outside counsel to protect member interests in residuals payable by The Weinstein Company. As a bankruptcy filing in the next few weeks appears increasingly likely, we strongly encourage you to immediately cash any checks you may have from work performed on Weinstein titles.


Legit notice.
Plus interesting news for non-members, too.

serious question......what is it that makes his skin orange?

and yet white circles around his eyes like goggles were there.
But tanning beds turn you brown if you are lucky or even pink or red if you are not lucky, but...orange??

Oath Keepers, armed with guns, performing unsolicited guard duty outside High school

An armed Oath Keeper began watch outside a Fort Wayne Ind High School Friday.

Mark Cowan, an Army Veteran, was moved to do something following the series of school shootings across the country and threats of violence at schools closer to home.

He found a spot off of school grounds, but close enough to keep an eye on people going in and out of
North Side high school. Armed with a handgun and AR-15, Cowan told NewsChannel 15 he is there to protect the students and ward off anyone who is a threat to their safety.

I's love to know more about his military history, esp. his d/c status.

Wasn't our imagination. Look at this January temp graph.

This is for SW Ala. Feb. chart is looking the same.



In case you are wondering why the NRA is tax exempt...

I was curious, so Google told me this.

Groups with an educational or social mission (described in Section 501C3 of the code) pay no taxes and contributions made to them can be deductible.
The NRA has tax exempt status as a Social Welfare organization... 501(c)4

There's something happening here......

including photos of survivors, to raise money for his reelection campaign.

Letter from Parkland teacher: How dare you put me in constant danger so that you can be reelected.

I
nstead of making dead teachers into saints, make them safer when they are still alive.

I am furious. How dare you force me to choose between my own children and those that I teach. How dare you allow powerful adults who love guns to be more important than a generation of children growing up in fear. I don’t want to spend mornings memorizing my children’s clothing so I can identify them later. I don’t want to spend professional development hours learning how to save a few more lives by setting up barricades. Sometimes when a kid is driving me crazy in class I think to myself: “Would I die for you? Would I lose everything to save you from harm?” I have my moments when I shake my head NO.
