I hear of France being polarized, er, paralyzed, by the Great Storm of 2010, so that people were unable to get to work the last week of November.
And in Germany, of trains, turning around, and returning to Prague because the track was under snow.
So I guess it is not so bad here . . . we can still get around, but mass transit was very unreliable all last week. Even this weekend there are still large sections of the sidewalks and streets in PRague 1 & 2 that are un-cleared, which makes trudging over the cobblestones very precarious and miserable.
