stuck in a snowstorm

Even though Finland is a northern country, our climate is one of the steady ones. Thus, when a snowstorm hits the country, it is something of a spectacle. Irritated, bemused, thousands of Finns struggle today to access their meetings or seminars (me supposedly heading for Ubicom in Espoo) as the physical infrastructure suddenly stops functioning. Nature strikes back?
