More than 150 people died as artic winds swept across Europe and parts of North America, bringing record low temperatures and icy roads. The worst casualties were in Central Europe, but everywhere the vulnerable - old, homeless, drunk and unlucky - were victims. A new Year's tradition was nearly frozen out in London, where Big Ben's timing mechanism had to be de-iced by technicians in time for its midnight peals. Central Italy was cloggeg by snow . In Canada, avalanches isolated tiny towns in Britsh Columbia, where residents relied on planes for bread and milk.
But harsh weather brought joy to Holland.
Skaters crowded canals that were frozen, thick enough- 15 cm- to plan the
"Elftendentoch", or Eleven Cities Tour , which is a 200-km skating marathon
linking cities in the northen Friesland region. The race, which has been run only 14 other
years in this century, captivates the Ducth and makes its winners an instant national
hero. The last race, in 1986, attracted 16,000 skaters and a million onlookers. (170
