The overall death toll from the cold snap that began 11 days ago topped 400 while forecasters warned there would be no early let-up to the freezing weather.
Europe continues to be blanketed in snow as the cold snap which has so far killed hundreds across the continent shows no signs of stopping. Hundreds of villages across Eastern Europe were today completely cut off as temperatures plummeted in some places to -40C.

ofc its winter but not normally this cold...
It was last year, if not worse.
- in December 2010 ..
The Republic of Ireland's lowest ever December temperature on record was recorded on this date. The mercury plummeted to -17.5 °C at Straide, County Mayo.
- This is how January 2011 was..
January again was colder than average across the UK, though much milder than December, with a mean temperature across the UK of 3.1°C.
February 2011 February was a very mild month (the 9th mildest in the last 100 years ) with very little frost and much of the country having its first snow-free February since 1998. The only significant wintry weather came on the 18-21st when some overnight dustings of snow fell as far south as the Midlands.
