   A rare snowstorm has blanketed swathes of Istanbul shutting down numerous roads. Authorities in response opened main roads, and citizens are gradually returning to their normal lives.  However, citizens expressed joy despite the risks of car accidents and falling on the snow

The General Directorate of Civil Aviation in Turkey announced resuming flights at Istanbul International Airport through one runway, after closing for several hours due to the heavy snowfalls

The snow is majestic but we are afraid of falling or slipping on the snow and of car accidents

-SOUNDBITE (A Turkish citizen)

People left their cars because of the heavy snowfalls and went back to their homes on foot. I think we should have some mercy in these conditions

-SOUNDBITE (A Turkish citizen)

The snowfall is really nice but it was heavy. I came from another city and was forced to stay here because of roads closures.  However, snowfalls delight me
