Meteorologist Joanna Donnelly got a cute letter from a little girl thanking her for the days off school

Not all heroes wear capes.

IT’S BEEN A difficult two days for people with Storm Ophelia – not least the poor meteorologists holed up in Met Éireann as they attempt to keep the public up to date.

However, Olivia O’Driscoll from Schull in Co. Cork wanted to show her appreciation for those hard working weather people – and, eh, say thanks for the red weather warning.

So, she wrote meteorologist Joanna Donnelly a lovely letter.

The letter reads: “Dear Ms. Donnelly – thank you so much for warning us all about Hurricane Ophelia and calling a red warning.

My dad is a fisherman and he is safe. My granddad is a fisherman too and he is safe.”


(She was also grateful for the two days off school, naturally).

Met Éireann’s Joanna Donnelly shared the letter on Twitter, saying: “My work here is done.”

Storm Ophelia, more like, Storm O-FEELS-ia, haha, am I right?

(I’m sorry).
