The RED WEATHER ALERT is still on, all roads in the area are flooded, rivers are running crazy, people's gardens have disappeared....
I HOPE YOU ARE WARM AND SNUG AND DRY TONIGHT while reading this post.
Unfortunately I did not have my camera in my disposal so I had to use my phone. The images are a bit dodgy for my standard but sorry people this is all I have. Here they are:

Sometimes when the weather is out of control the only option for photos is from a moving vehicle.
Obviously, not when driving. The best is to hitch a ride with a friend and snap away.
Believe me, it's real fun
Here is my collection of images from Galway in the rain, collected over the last few years.
In Galway city the rain hardly ever stops, so there is plenty of opportunity for this sort of fun over and over again.... Enjoy!!!
Maybe there is a hope for the next day after all with a sunset like this one!!

As any other person living out of Dublin, occasionally I need to go there on business for a few hours and and then to hurry back home to my part of the world, in my case Galway.
I grabbed one of the early buses, so I can be there bright and early, that way I hoped to finish as fast as possible with a bit of time left for sightseeing. I always use GoBus when I travel. For me they are the most comfortable and reliable. It takes two hours and a half to get from Galway to Dublin, but the GoBus is so comfy, the time passes very fast especially if there is something to occupy yourself with - a book, a phone, a laptop....
Once in Dublin there was no time for fun or aimless walking around. Nevertheless, I did feel like a tourist for a day which was really great and relaxing, I dutifully took my camera out for a spin and grabbed a few shots on the way from and back to the bus stop.
Unfortunately my business concluded right on time for the returning bus ride home so I almost had to run. This is provincial life for you, not much time for entertainment when you go to Dublin on business. Hopefully next time.....
