Following days of heavy snowfall traffic on the highway between Moscow and St. Petersburg was at such a standstill, the only traffic that was moving was foot traffic.

State-run Novosti news reported that traffic was backed up 125 miles. You read that right. 125 MILES!

Snow began falling Friday which was to blame for much of the problems because by the time it tapered off Sunday morning, three feet of snow had fallen. By Sunday night, road crews had at least gotten one lane in each direction open so traffic could begin moving again.

So the next time you sit through three red lights to turn at 41st and Louise this month, you've now got reason number 125 to be happy you live here instead of Russia!
