The M62 was closed for over a day, trapping drivers on the motorway, while blizzard conditions in Leeds gave way to tragedy when a woman was found dead in the street.
But is there more to come?
Not according to the Met Office. The Big Freeze is giving way to the Big Thaw - with temperatures rising and snow giving way to sleet and rain.
