Cold weather death toll passes 100 in Ukraine.

Eastern Europe's freezing weather has hit the poorest hard, particularly in Greece.

A state of emergency has been declared in the south of Serbia - where deep drifts have blocked roads and cut off electricity supplies.
Temperatures have dropped as low as -37C in some areas.

Sentient beings, self and others, enemies and dear ones-all are made by thoughts. It is like seeing a rope and mistaking it for a snake. We have been deluded by our thoughts. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.
