I once watched a movie 'Moscow on the Hudson' - and when I saw photos of icy winds and snow gripping the UK, it reminds of me Siberia as since childhood Siberia is synonymous to vast areas covered with thick sheet of snow and people seen shivering in cold.
Siberian Express? Well sort of - as UK is in grip of extreme cold and under heavy sheet of snow
as of today, large band of snow spreading northwards from south-east England up into northern England and Scotland and up to 20cms expected on higher ground while many areas will get 5cm in the next 24 hours.
The freezing conditions mean that Britain's transport network is creaking again with roads closed after crashes or impassable because of ice. Many trains are being cancelled and airports are warning of severe disruption all day. This has shut M40 in Warwickshire while M1 is suffering long delays with many roads considered impassable.
The air traffic is also badly affected. Heathrow says 10% of flights, around 155, will be cancelled while most UK airports warning of disruption - and the Met Office warns freezing conditions likely to continue until Thursday making conditions 'treacherous.'
