'Swimming wheelie bins' - Irish people are not disappointing with Twitter reactions to Storm Barra

Take a look at some of the best tweets from the lighter side of the weather.
Overreaction by authorities to #StormBarra, as usual. Other areas, like Jupiter and Saturn, regularly have 800mph winds without locking down their societies, yet here we are closing down over 150kmh winds. Another assault on freedom.— Gavin Nugent (@gavnugent) December 7, 2021
You know it’s getting serious when ALL the bread - even the brown seedy stuff - is gone by 8pm.— Eoin English (@EoinBearla) December 6, 2021
Loads of Christmas crackers though - if you’re 11ft tall.

We don't get 'storms' in Ireland. It gets fierce windy or it's bucketing. #StormBarra ?— It's all ticketyboo (@Theredheadket) December 7, 2021
