Look, don't ask us how we survived January but we did, somehow.
The Irish absolutely adore talking about the weather and with all the weather warnings in January, we had a mighty time of it.
But, February is here now and you may have noticed that the days are getting slightly longer and you bet your arse, you know what that means.
Lads and ladies, we're happy to announce that "there's a GRAND AULD STRETCH in the evenings".
We're not the only people to notice it either and here is some of our favourite references so far:
Lads, has to be said... there's a grand stretch in the evenings...

Oh don't get us started about the stretch.

Absolutely blinded by the stretch.

Nothing better than a bit of snowy stretch.

You want the stretch? YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE STRETCH.
Roughly translates as "sure there's a grand stretch in the evening.... and I'm off down the bog" https://t.co/S8toiUGIYp

And this is only the beginning of it.
"Sure isn't spring just around the corner."
"This is it."
"Sure, look." etc etc.
Oh yes, it's time to break out all the weather-line classics.
