Cooley Mountains, County Louth.
My word! The 18z GFS update barely has any breakdown in cold before another real blast of cold air arrives from the East. That is a huge change in what was been forecast and needs watching👀 pic.twitter.com/yVtIFDTUss

Johnstown Park, Dublin this morning
The very cold northerly airmass over us, with tonight being the coldest night of the season so far, will be replaced next week by a much milder Atlantic airstream bringing more unsettled weather with it. pic.twitter.com/BzjfIWhlwT

An elaborate and rather brilliant promo for the Motomaster Eliminator battery made by auto parts retailer Canadian Tire
A Chevrolet 2500HD truck chassis with a body shell hewn from nearly five tonnes of ice, complete with mirrors, reg plate, door handles and hanging air freshener.
Frozen to -40ºC, the construction team successfully drove the glaciated pickup for over a kilometer through the streets of Ontario, highlighting the resilience of the battery (and the average Canadian ass) to extremes of cold.
At temperatures below about −25 °C (−13 °F), bubbles will freeze in the air and may shatter when hitting the ground. When a bubble is blown with warm air, the bubble will freeze to an almost perfect sphere at first, but when the warm air cools, and a reduction in volume occurs, there will be a partial collapse of the bubble. A bubble, created successfully at this low temperature, will always be rather small; it will freeze quickly and will shatter if increased further.
That’s what we thought.
