OK, this is a bit of a stretch, but it is the aftermath of the power of nature.
We had huge floods late last year - can't remember if it was October or November. They were heavy enough that the road and path beside the river Liffey in town were damaged along a short stretch - you could see where the whole footpath had buckled. I haven't been able to walk on that side of the river ever since - I'll be so glad when it's open again.
The other day I saw one of the workmen climbing into the storm drain.

Ironically, the Civil Defence compound is just along this stretch - and none of the volunteers could get there during the peak of the flooding.

The first tree was brought down by wind, the second by snow.
