Frankfurt Airport opened today after closing yesterday evening. The Italian government sent 800 soldiers to help dig out Milan after heavy snows blocked highways and disrupted air and rail travel, Corriere della Sera reported today.
The U.K.’s Automobile Association Ltd. said yesterday was “easily the worst day” it has had in 10 years, with almost 22,000 jobs for the vehicle-rescue service. Special teams have been deployed to the worst-affected areas to help people stuck in remote places, and members out on the roads are being made a priority, AA head of public affairs, Paul Watters.
This morning was slightly better with a low of -3C but again, many many roads still covered in black ice and driving treacherous. Daytime temperatures are forecast to increase to above freezing for the first time in over a week but i doubt its the last we’ll see of the Snow.

Whatever the weather, have a great Christmas keep warm, keep safe and here’s hoping you have a peaceful 2010.
