As in the previous winter, many airports throughout Western Europe were closed and thousands of flights were grounded, Dec. 19-22, as storms brought heavy snow and freezing temperatures. France, Germany and the UK were the hardest hit, with stranded travelers sleeping in airports.

Trains, buses and cars also were unable to run because of ice and snow. Hundreds of people were stuck on trains between London and northeast England when power lines were damaged.
