Snow Watch
Found my first bit of "midday ice" a couple of weeks back in a burst bog atop Mangerton.

Pretty sure it was snowing around this time last year, because I managed to get completely lost in a white out on the Reeks, though it was of course nothing compared to the Big Freeze in January.

So where's it gonna snow happen first? Nothing on the Reeks yesterday, can't make out the tops of them this morning in the drizzle. They have the height advantage, but I guess they have the drawback of being near the sea and being in the southern end of the island.

Where does it usually snow first anyway? Will the ranges further north, the Mournes or Donegal, get the first flurry? Or the peaks further away from the sea, Galtymore and Lug? Anyone see any yet? I presume there may be the odd snowflake at night too, but I'm talking 'bout a white summit that lasts into the day.
