Europe's winter-to-remember, weather-wise, persists and takes a deadly toll in many places.   These are recent photos showing the extent of the brutal impact.   Above is a dead flamingo, which succumbed to freezing temperatures, on a snowy lakeshore at Gruissan, France.   Gruissan is in southernmost France on the Mediterranean coast, near the Spanish border.
