The recent blizzard that shut down the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic captured the attention of our nation while one resident captured it with a high definition time-lapse.
Dan had heard the forecast of the record snow, so he decided to get footage of the event over a two-day period from his Alexandria, Virginia residence. It didn't take long for a few harmless flakes to begin sticking to the ground before blanketing the landscape and finally burying everything in sight.
Watch as the historic weather event unfolds.
A lot changed from noon on Friday to noon on Sunday, and Dan's camera proved just that. Let's hope he had plenty of milk, eggs, and bread stocked away. Why does everyone feel like they have to make French toast during a snowstorm?
After an event like this, being prepared for disruptions in infrastructure services doesn't seem so crazy. It didn't take long for enough snow to fall to completely halt transportation in many areas and also disturb the local wildlife).
Blizzard, flood, earthquake: all can happen with little notice. Be ready so you can enjoy the show instead of fretting about your own survival.
