The 7 stages of dealing with this magnificent weather

Confusion…hope…fear. It’s all there.

THE PAST FEW days have been emotional for all of us.

We’re not used to this weather, and it stirs up all kinds of emotions.

People wander around looking at each other saying, ‘Can’t cope…’, ‘What is this?’, and ‘Is this actually happening?’

Here are the seven stages of dealing with this weather.

1.  Surprise

What the…?  The sun?  In our Irish sky?

2.  Delight

This is brilliant!  Let’s get out there! Call all our friends!

3.  Embracement

The great thing about living on a small island is that you’re never far from a beach, you know?

4.  Planning

Let’s have a barbeque this weekend!  Or do those watersports we’ve always talked about!

5.  Confusion

6.  Hope

Imagine if it stayed like this…we’d be so brown.  So healthy!  So happy…sigh.

7.  Fear

What if it goes away?  What will we do then?  Or if it stays forever?!?  I DON’T HAVE THE CLOTHES FOR THIS!
