Western Europe and the UK in particular have been paralyzed by snow up to 40 cm thick, which is nothing for Russian standards.

This was the scene on the M5 motorway in Somerset (UK) today

Meanwhile blizzards hit Moscow today but army of snowplows was sent to clear the snow off Moscow's main boulevards.

All traffic is halted during cleanup.

Yet the Russian capital suffers from monster traffic jams even in dry weather.

This was the scene in Moscow today:

In Ohio we have had record cold for weeks now. People are already out ice fishing and it looks like lake Erie may freeze all of the way to Canada this season. People may be able to drive across it. So much for border control.
