Snow storms moved from Western Europe to the U.S. and Russia, causing an unprecedented wave of chaos in all modes. Thousands of flights were canceled in the U.S. are stuck trains, buses and even underground. Snow fell in places where it had not seen for over a hundred years.
In Russia, a rare natural phenomenon of freezing rain, resulting in damage to the mains, leaving hundreds of thousands of people without electricity.

Simultaneously in Australia, located in the southern hemisphere, where has been enjoying the summer, hit the incessant rainfall.
