'We're from Germany - if the fish don't pass you at eye level it's just a light breeze' - the best #StormAli reactions
There's an orange weather warning, traffic chaos trees are falling on roads, and there are gusts of 143kmh recorded by Met Eireann in Galway - Storm Ali is no laughing matter and it's important to stay safe.
However, some of us just can't help seeing the funny side of some of the less dramatic incidents this morning, whether it's an upended traffic cone, disappearing barbecue, or the electricity going just as you set about making your morning tea...
Here are some of the wittier reactions:

Kids, don’t go out in #StormAli wearing gloss. Your lips will be like a Fuzzy Felt board but instead of cute characters you’ll have a wrapper from a breakfast roll, a flyer for Smyths and half a dozen leaves stuck to your pout.— Mazzy K (@MazzyK) September 19, 2018

#StormAli has apparently claimed my plastic glasshouse, and the innocent tomato plants therein. Carnage.— Jonathan Healy (@jonathanhealy) September 19, 2018
