Signs of winter

The most discussed subject in Denmark this Christmas, besides the rantings of the Minister of Health, Bertel Haarder, has been the weather. Having been hit hard by King Winter in all his glory and all his wrath, Denmark has been a country under siege as the roads has been closed down due to snow and accidents, the railroads has been unable to cope professionally and the airports has struggled to keep the planes running. Even the icebreakers has been called on standby despite a decree from the Minister of Defense that we wouldn't have problems with ice in the Danish waters.
