Snow Joke

Your first snowman picture of the season

It’s November and the snow has started. Brrr.

THE WEATHER IS certainly getting cold, but not this cold surely?

Luckily for anyone at sea-level, this snow was only seen on Ireland’s highest peak.

Billy Horan and his father ‘Nelius scaled Carraunthoohil in Co Kerry and discovered about an inch of snow at the summit, the first snow of the year at the top of the mountain.

So, what to do with that much snow? Make a snowman of course.
