I keep watching news, Europeans are having more extreme conditions, I especially wonder the general situation at refugee camps, those people never got used to have this kind of extreme cold conditions.
Istanbul airports have a key roles for the connections between Europe, middle&far east. Heavy snow and high winds resulted cancellation of hundreds of flights, caused rerouted them. Also all ferry, boat connections had to be canceled due to high wind and blizzard. In addition, the Bosphorus Strait which runs through Istanbul and it is one of the Europe's busiest shipping lanes was closed due to blizzard and all ferry services halted.
It is pretty nice to see city under a white blanket but reality is so different. Especially, transportation in this mega-pol city so hard in these icy road conditions.
I'm thinking our troops, they are fighting at the southern part of the country and some of them at different places...in these extreme weather conditions they do their best for our nation.
I also keep thinking refugee camps and homeless people at all over the European countries.... Especially, Greek islands, southern part of Italy, they live under tents, how they can survive in these extreme weather conditions?
I just watched from TV that airports closed at Sicily and southern Italy, too due to heavy snowing!
2016 had hottest summer, 2017 winter is also going to be take a place with its extreme winter.
