Blizzard.

Back in the days before the M6 motorway, the old A6 over Shap Fell was notorious for becoming blocked with heavy snow in winter. Drivers could be trapped there for three or four days at least. There is a plaque at the top which describes things. The people in Shap gave the drivers food and shelter.

There were other difficult roads that became snow blocked in the uk as well.
