15 Dec 10 - "In the town of Osnabrueck all public transport was suspended because of the state of the roads," says this article in the Daily Mail.

“It is absolute chaos here,“ an Osnabrueck police spokesman said.

Jack-knifed trucks littered roads across Germany, and not a single train ran without delays in the entire country.

In the state of North Rhine-Westphalia there were some 700 accidents on the autobahns, and international airports like Dusseldorf had to shut down as the snow blew in. Hamburg saw 400 road accidents during the same 12 hours.

"On the A9 autobahn leading into Munich the traffic jam into the city reached 18 miles long. In Nuremberg a sports hall and stadium were closed due to the build up of ice and snow on the roof."

Several people were killed in the accidents and dozens hospitalised. Damages are already in the double digit millions.
