10 Amazing Photos Showing Winter Storm Jonas Aftermath
Over two feet of snow was dumped over the Northeastern part of the United States throughout last weekend. While many major cities including Washington DC and New York are still digging themselves out of the storm, many people took photos of the aftermath showing just how much of the white stuff they took on. Midwesterners may deal with this kind of snow each year, but two feet doesn’t fall in one swoop often in this part of the country. Here’s some of the amazing photos that people have posted of Winter Storm Jonas, also dubbed as “Snowzilla.”
This is one of the many scenes in overcrowded subways in Brooklyn, New York on Monday. Because so many citizens still have their cars buried in snow, this was the only way to get around.
Workers Doing Extra Time
It was back to work for many people on Monday, and some even had to plow their own way into buildings. Here’s a worker clearing his own way on Third Avenue in New York City.
Still Walking Dogs
In Philadelphia, the snow didn’t stop this person from gathering their two dogs and going for a walk in it. Contrary to what you might expect, dogs actually love running in the white stuff.
It’s admittedly a little goofy looking, but somebody made a snowman close to the White House in Washington DC. If there’s any magic in that hat, he may want to move out immediately or he could become a national threat.
Buried In Snow
This street in Washington DC shows just how much snow was dumped all over the place. Many cars were completely buried by “Snowzilla.”
Some places may not have gotten as much snow, but the same storm system created massive flooding in New Jersey. Here’s somebody walking along a flooded road in Sea Isle City.
Higher temperatures have created flash flooding and also some very scary looking icicles. Here’s one in a New York neighborhood that was formed in the warmer weather days after the storm.
No Taxi Service
Lots of public transportation closed down during the storm. Here are a number of taxis that were buried along the side of the road in New York.
No Help From The Plows
A man in Baltimore uploaded this photo from the comfort of his home. You can see just how high the snow piled up on the road as it reached right up to the car windows.
Snow Piles On Roads
A snow pile in this picture closed down Delaware Avenue in Wilmington, Delaware. There aren’t many places to store this much snow, so some roads have to be sacrificed until the piles start melting.
