Russia has been hit by heavy snowfall over the past week, causing
traffic accidents, flight delays, and cutting off some remote
settlements entirely. Latest worldwide snow coverage maps show that the
entire country is covered in snow.

­As more than 10 inches of snow fell in Moscow – more than half of
the average snowfall for the whole of January – the already congested
city is on the verge of a traffic collapse. Traffic measuring portal
Yandex reported Grade 10 (out of 10) jams on Friday, as strong winds
created blizzard conditions and built imposing snow drifts.

More than 12,000 de-icers and snow sweepers are out on the streets, working around the clock.

As the city has come to a standstill the chair of the Duma’s
transport committee has called for local transport officials to face
legal sanctions for failing to cope with the winter weather.

“Until local bureaucrats face the wrath of the law, winter will
always be a surprise occurrence. They will continue to do nothing, as
people suffer,”
Mikhail Bryachak told Kommersant FM radio.

Several dozen flights have been postponed at the city’s major
airports, with thousands of passengers stranded, many having to stay
overnight.

While in the large population centers in western Russia the
snowstorms have caused inconvenience, further east they have been life
threatening.

The polar circle city of Norilsk has seen snowfall build to a height
of more than 10 feet, and entire apartment blocks have been barricaded
by snow overnight, requiring city workers to dig passageways through the
snow banks.

Meanwhile, icicles up to three feet in length have formed off every
building ledge, breaking at random and causing a lethal hazard for
pedestrians below.

Nearly two hundred people have died throughout Russia as a direct
result of weather-related accidents and hypothermia this season,
according to official statistics, although the extreme conditions have
likely contributed to many more fatalities.

However, meteorologists have promised some good news: the stormy conditions are expected to recede over the weekend.

Holy shit that's insane!! I guess there are no animals left in Russia, what happens to the livestock? And the food? What happens to agriculture over there?



It's the simple things, small every day deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love.......~Gandalf~
