Galway International Rally, wireless and gale force storms

The Rally is on again. They haven't been fortunate with the weather.

A shed-roof was blown onto the street and delayed one of the stages. In Moylough a tree fell into the powerlines and onto the street covering half of it. Around Monivea a couple of trees fell into the telephone wires and onto the street. The weather is quite inconsitant with dry spells, lashing rain and hail taking each their turn.

On top of all of that from mid day and on most of Moycullen and Menlo had no power. Roscommon seems to have random power issues, too. Our network has been keeping up so far, with only one base known to be damaged for sure, but looking at what's to come over the weekend, we might be unfortunate to see more down the road.
