It happened. Storm Emma hit and met the Beast from the East head on, and we've been left trapped in our homes with only thirty loaves of bread to keep us sustained, and that's going stale.
The east of the country was hit hardest, as predicted, and the overall snowfall has left many places completely unrecognisable. Here are some of the best images and videos we've seen after the visit of Storm Emma.
So this is what a ‘Red Alert for heavy snowfall’ actually looks like @DublinAirport. We’ll have further updates in the morning. Stay safe. #StormEmma #BeastFromTheEast #Snow pic.twitter.com/ENajr7xaFX
