Trains and snow

Today it snowed so much that traffic came to a stand still.

Even the trains couldn't move forward or back and thus the main traffic stations couldn't be reached, because trains blocked the rails.

Last week all trains came to a stand still because there was a fire in the communication centre, today the snow caused problems.

People were brought to some larger stations where they got coffee or tea and had to wait in the cold.
Nothing special was organised for children or people who need a bit of extra protection, like pregnant moms.

Then they were loaded in trains, hoping the train would stop at their own station. Otherwise they would be in an intercity and had to find a stoptrain to go back to where they wanted to be.

We can fly to Mars, but we can't deal with snow.
