The changeability of Irish weather is legendary, but Irish people appear to have something of a blind spot about it.

Two weeks ago we were whippping out the barbeques and stuffing the winter coats into the back of the wardrobe but this week we're forced to pack away our notions alongside said barbeques and drag that crumpled winter coat back out like a sartorial representation of a dream dashed.

Yes, it's nearly May but northwesterly breezes have been causing havoc since Monday with temperatures dropping to between 0 and 4 degrees Celsius at night resulting in frost, thunder, rain and even hail.

If you had the rage this morning as you defrosted your car windscreen you're not alone.  Everyone's pretty darn miffed about, and a tad surprised by, the weather.
