TextSwiss temperature plunges to -35.1 degrees Geneva (AFP) Feb 6, 2012 - Swiss temperatures plunged to minus 35.1 degrees Celsius in the eastern Graubuenden canton on Sunday night, weather agency MeteoSwiss said, the lowest figure recorded so far this year. The mercury plummeted in Samedan, an Alpine region home to winter sports resorts such as St. Moritz, Pontresina and Sils-Maria. In the west, minus 27.6 degrees was recorded in the village of La Brevine in the canton of Neuchatel. La Brevine holds the record for being the coldest place in Switzerland, with minus 41.8 degrees measured in 1987. In Geneva, the thermometer was at minus 10 degrees on Monday morning.

A few days of cold is NOT a climate change, let alone an ice age.

5-6 feet of snow here in NL, Canada, probably the most snow in a couple of years. The only record broken was snowfall in November.
Snow in the Sahara, Rome, at least 20 broken in Europe pertaining to snowfall. Over 360 died from the cold wave there.
It's about -10 today, not too bad. -20 really sucks.
Better a migration of the seasons,as we have no spring in some parts of the world.

TextIce breakers called in as icy conditions across Europe worsen and deathtoll reaches 400 Posted on February 7, 2012 February 7, 2012 – EUROPE — Authorities used explosives, icebreakers and tractors Tuesday in the battle to overcome Europe’s big freeze, as dozens more died of hypothermia and tens of thousands remained cut off by snow. Around 400 people have now died from the cold weather in Europe since the cold snap began 11 days ago. While there was some respite for people in Ukraine — where more than 130 deaths have been recorded — the mercury plunged overnight to minus 39.4 degrees Celsius in the Kvilda region of the Czech Republic. More bodies were found either on the streets, in their cars or in their homes in Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, Hungary and across the Balkans. Conditions worsened when snow- and rain-swollen rivers burst a Bulgarian dam and killed at least eight, while more homeless people perished on frigid city streets. National radio reported two other people were killed when their car was swept off a bridge. “People are in panic,” regional mayor Mihail Liskov said on national radio. “Ninety percent of the village is under water.”
Over the weekend, the lowest temperatures in decades have hit areas of northern China, as the cold wave continues. Some places were as cold as minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Blizzards have left over three feet of snowfall in parts of Inner Mongolia, and winds have reached as high as 30 miles per hour. The freezing weather has already caused the death of numerous livestock. [Sogdoi, Head of Kequ Town]: "So far 2616 livestock have died, including 304 sheep and 11 horses." Animals aren’t the only ones who can’t withstand the low temperatures. Many residents have left the area to escape the cold. [Resident]: "My family have all left, and I will leave soon." According to forecasts from China’s National Meteorological Center, the cold is expected to persist for at least another week
