We experienced first hand a big snow storm several days ago, that left us without electricity in the village. It started to snow in the late afternoon and it did not stop until the next day. We couldn't see anything through the windows of the house, since it was snowing heavily and the snow covered all the windowsills. When we tried to use the home phone, we realised that the line was not working. So, we tried to call a neighbour by mobile phone and to our surprise, there was no signal. It's a good job that we went to sleep and we forgot about the storm, because we couldn't do anything else until it was over.

Getting that for you now...
