This morning, as I set my “sail” to work. Now am setting my “sail” not onto the river or sea, but on a train from Balbriggan a County in Dublin, to the Dublin City Centre. Ok!! Now I have you screaming blue!!!

With the lovely but mighty snowfall last night, it looked set for another day of delay on all routes to the Dublin City Centre; and thanks to that prediction, I missed my train. On my arrival at the train Station in Balbriggan in-wait for the next train, the second part of the predictions became evident. The train was delayed for an approximate 15 minutes…… Lol…… Now the long wait commenced.

It was windy at the station, but the view was great. The platforms were packed with lots of “train missers” like myself, whose faces ranges from tired, sleepy, ‘wonderers’ to ‘smiliers’.

With Balbriggan Train Station is located close to the sea, I could see the sea smiling, waving and clapping. The sound from the sea drowned all the gloomy and sorrowful faces, as I could see some birds flying freely and rejoicing and clapping their wings in readiness for an eventful day filled with great wind surfing.

Now this is what I had to be thankful for. Firstly the birds were cold but braced the windy and icy cold to enjoy themselves, while i was wrapped up in very protective warm clothe, that is intended to keep off the cold and make me feel warm and smiley.

Oh my train is finally here!!! As I set out to enter my long awaited train, I could see the faces of people; some still gloomy despite the arrival of the ‘delayed’ train. The famous voice from the Station loudspeakers announced “Please stand clear behind the yellow lines, train now approaching” . I wish I can translate it to  Irish language, but hope you’ll make do with this present English translator or else I will get you an online language translator or an online language dictionary.

Now we set for our Journey. Station-by-Station we went on. From Balbriggan to Skerries, I could see the views clearly, as I took a seat near the window. The landscape was fantastic, as the ice covered most of the land and sea shores. The grounds were mostly white as they have been bemused by the heavy snow of the last night.

Most Stations like Skerries were fairly dry with less snow on the platforms, but as we approached the Dublin City Cebtre, every platform passed clearly showed that we are really dead in Snovember.

At Howt Junction, the whole Platforms were covered in snow, giving off a sense of a white Christmas in November. All through from Howt Junction to Colloney Station (|in Dublin City Centre), showed off the magnitude of snowfall, as the whole ground were lovely covered by thick layers of white ice. The hills, the water channels, the streets and the hose roof tops. the view was incredible lovely and made me wish it can all be like this everyday, as everywhere was very bright.

Now let me relax and enjoy these views, I will be with you shortly. oooops!!! The Canal has just bowed to the forces of nature. Its all frozen up, just on the start of the predicted Irish Big Freeze of Snowy Snovember!.

Share the joy
