Ireland's weather

LOL!  Today the Irish Vagabonds set out from Bunratty and drove to Waterford--a distance of about three hours.  We left in rain, which quickly turned into sleet, which turned into SNOW, which actually stuck to the roads and covered the fields, then turned into sleet again.  By the time we reached Waterford, the sun was shining and the air was lovely.  

Only in Ireland can you drive through four different kinds of weather in the space of a few hours.  We toured the Waterford Crystal Factory (amazing!) and then drove over to Cashel, but missed touring the Rock of Cashel by only a few minutes.  

Still amazing, though.  And I'm getting used to driving on the left (white-knuckled).  And roundabouts.  And small cars and even smaller roads. 
Enjoy the pictures!

The first picture looks like the Cotswold where we lived in England.

Keep the sleet and snow--it's pouring rain here right now.
