Default Top top snow storms you remember in Cork?

Suppose its different for everyone depending on age. Im an old cunt so i have a hazy recollection of the 1982 winter storm and more clear memories of 1986 when there was a fuck load of snow too. Think 1992 had a bad one too but not a patch on 86. I remember in 86 we were building snowmen a good 2 weeks after.

The deep freeze of 94, snowed solid for 25 minutes. No stress put on the national bread reserves though

Early 90s - February '91 I think it was. Early teens, fun times.

They were nothing compared to the snow we got during the 70's. There was no warnings no complaining and everyone got on about their business.
