(Twee weken later op 30 december 1978 wordt Nederland getroffen door zware sneeuwstormen die een ongekende chaos veroorzaken. Vooral de provincies Groningen, Drenthe en Friesland worden verrast door opgewaaide hopen sneeuw die soms meters hoog zijn, terwijl het in Zuid-Nederland tegelijkertijd regent bij temperaturen van +10°C, maar ook daar gaat het later sneeuwen. Het gewone leven wordt enorm ontwricht. Er volgen twee maanden met ongekend winters weer, waarin zware sneeuwval en ijzel worden afgewisseld door dooiperiodes en de wegen zo spiegelglad worden, dat het tot eind februari niet mogelijk is zich veilig op weg te begeven.)
