Now it’s THREE days stuck in the snow. See video. Some of the thousands of cars and trucks stranded on a major highway yesterday after a monster snowfall have been stuck for more than two three days.

As drivers struggled to keep their engines running and their vehicles heated,  the backup lengthened to 125 miles long, CNN reports. It had shortened to 34 miles by last night as some of the roadway between Moscow and St. Petersburg was cleared.

    bloody well organised to get food and supplies out, rather than leaving a line of vehicles piled up.

    Heavy snowfall continues in the region. December 4, gusts of wind and snow led to power outages in 302 towns in Ukraine.

    Heavy snowfall also in Mount Uludag, Turkey, where many cars were stranded in 20 cm of unexpected snow.

    The blizzards are not constrained, neither in time, nor in place. They keep coming back, reacher further every time.

    It seems that even the Russians are being taken by surprise as this years winter has kicked in prematurely and severely. I am told that the drivers had not yet fitted their vehicles with the winter tires. Thus found it difficult to move in the ice and snow that came upon them unexpectedly. We must learn from this incident that winters are getting longer and more severe than has been the case in years past. I envisage that in years to come the Baltic Sea will be frozen all year around thus shipping will no longer be able to enter Leningrad to drop off their cargo. This Russia will have problems getting supplies in from abroad. One can invisage the use of caterpiller track haulage vehicles towing trailers mounted on sleds battling their way through the Ice Age conditions covering the whole of Western Europe too.

    Wow! This must have been how the mammoths felt as it snowed.. and snowed.. and snowed.. eventually, of course, they were simply buried under several stories of snow..
