Drivers Stranded In Bulgaria Due To Snow

Having had to dig the car out of snow this weekend and today for work and require a tow from a tractor to get home I can see clearly why many other people got stranded in the snow over the last few days. there is more forecast with will compound things even further. Shame this didn't happen at Christmas when we all didn't have to go to work.

Heavy snowfall has seriously disrupted transport in Bulgaria, blocking highways and leaving cars stranded in snow.
Officials in Bulgaria say the weather caused power outages in parts of that country Monday, and delayed most flights for about an hour at Sofia International Airport. Off-road vehicles are being used to free stranded drivers and transport patients requiring emergency treatment to the hospital.
