Heavy snowfall continued Thursday in parts of Austria and southern Germany, with several places cut off and the bad weather expected to persist. Snow was causing problems in other parts of Europe, even in Norways Arctic Svalbard archipelago.
Austrian police said that a 16-year-old boy from Australia was killed in an avalanche in St. Anton am Arlberg as he was skiing with his family on Wednesday. In neighboring Slovakia, the mountain rescue service said a 37-year-old Slovak man was killed by an avalanche in the Mala Fatra mountains.
That brought to at least 16 the number of weather-related deaths reported in Europe over the past week.
Several railway lines in the Alps were closed because of the snow, trucks and cars got stuck for hours on a highway in southwestern Germany and schools were closed in parts of Bavaria.

Bastardi on Weatherbell.com is doubling down on that we're heading to a big cold event here in the US towards the end of the month and lasting a while.
There is stratospheric warming around the North Pole that is sending an arctic blast to the eastern 2/3's of the US.
Geez, the photo of the relief truck looks like it was taken during the battle of the bulge.

Wiki...”Svalbard (prior to 1925 known by its Dutch name Spitsbergen) is a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. Situated north of mainland Europe, it is about midway between continental Norway and the North Pole.”

Those green Euroassholes will blame it on global warming.
