Winter conditions in Europe

This winter in many places in Europe has started out as the coldest since the measurements started in the mid 19th century, according to the meteorologists in Sweden. We have been reading about the chaos in the air traffic in Europe. I got stuck in Copenhagen recently and lost 12 hours on the airport. It would have taken less than 4 hours to travel the distance by bus.

And, in Sweden the trains have been having reoccurring problems. Many trains have been cancelled and others have been overbooked due to the cancellations. It has been recommended to bring extra food and warm clothing for the train travels in Sweden. For some routs buses have been called in to replace the trains.

Many roads have been blocked by snow and in some districts the ice has led to recommendations not to travel on the roads, from time to time. Some buses have been delayed but in general the bus traffic has been running according to plan. Buses and coaches are thus not only the most favourable choice for the environment. Buses and coaches also turn out to offer the most robust transports.
