Snow storm hits the Czech Republic

Over the upcoming 36 hours some parts of the county may get as much as 16 inches of snow. The part of the country where I live got about 11 inches so far. Results? Public transportation collapse, especially. The main freeway (D1) had two pile-ups, two truck accidents and several traffic jams between 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Friday. Trains had problems, too. It was a risk to try a bus on my 80-kilometer journey to my hometown, but it was okay, save for the freeway surface. Almost no plowing, definitely no salt… At least the Olomouc city parks finally look like winter wonderland…
