The weather is harsh in the northern hemisphere. I feel so sorry and sad to all those who are stuck in the airport, subway, train stations, bus terminals, in the bus, in their cars, in the airports and anywhere else I can imagine. The snow storm struck in the most busiest of time - the holiday rush.
This is one of the reason we don't travel to the colder regions on December - January. you just can't tell when the snow storm will hit the hardest. Even if the forecast says something about snow storm, one cannot expect the magnitude a storm can cause.
I pray everyone who are stuck right now in the cold will find some comfort in any means. I hope assistance and the resumption of transportation services go back to normal the soonest possible time.
