Heavy winter snow

A young woman uses her smartphone to check her social media pages while standing on a snow-covered street as snow falls in downtown, January 15, 2023. There are some people who enjoy the snowfall that falls earlier and more frequently than in previous years, while the government has decided to close state and private offices for two days in order to solve the gas and energy issue. Officials have warned that the weather is likely to spark holiday travel chaos for millions. With temperatures dropping more than 11C within hours, wet roads could suddenly turn to ice.
