The snow’s back (but not everyone’s complaining)

THE first snow of the winter saw Fermanagh wake up a blanket of snow causing disruption in many rural areas.

The wintery showers and flurries of snow fell over night on Tuesday evening and caused traffic congestion on some routes into Enniskillen.
Cuilcagh Mountain Park had also been closed to the public due to snow and “anticipated adverse weather conditions over the coming days”. The council issued advice not to visit the site until weather conditions had improved.
Many motorists braved the wintry conditions and the layer of snow was not heavy enough to constitute a snow day. Rather, it merely added an extra few minutes to the daily commute.
Rural primary schools across the county remained open. There were reports of heavy snow in the Brookeborough area which led to disruption for pupils making it into the local primary schools.
It was a similar story in Ederney and in Derrylin and Kinawley all buses made it to local schools despite tricky conditions being reported in the area
Fermanagh Herald readers shared their wintery snaps from across the county showing heavy snow in several rural areas, including the Knocks, Boho and Irvinestown.
Forecasters are predicting more wintry conditions with a yellow weather warning in place for this morning.
