#OTD in Irish History – 11 March:

Another great photo here at On This Day in Irish History…the weather changes quickly in Ireland; a heavy storm can blow through in ten minutes, leaving everything clear and bright.  Or in the case of this photo, everything is sunny in the foreground though the clouds are ominous looking in the background.  This may be hard to believe, but I once got stopped in a little traffic in the village of Killiney (south county Dublin) when it started to rain.  There was construction going on, and I sat there waiting for a few minutes as a light shower blew in and I had to turn the windshield wipers on even though the rain wasn’t terribly heavy; …the rental car was a hatchback and had a wiper blade on the back window as well as the windshield.  When I went to turn the rear wiper on, I noticed that there was no rain on the rear window, though the rain was coming down on a direct vertical angle.  This didn’t change until traffic finally started to move.  It was as if the car had stopped at the exact edge of the shower, half in and half out, and as the rain moved away from the car, the back window never got wet!  Strange!
