Relive the weekend's snowstorm — without the cabin fever.

Winter storm Jonas left the East Coast reeling this weekend, burying cities from Washington, D.C. to Philadelphia to New York, causing the cancellation of more than 12,000 flights, and leading to 30 blizzard-related deaths. New York's Central Park saw its second-highest snowfall total since 1869 with 26.8 inches — and The New York Times helpfully captured a time-lapse video of the storm bearing down on the city's most famous park.

Watch it all unfold — from the first flakes Friday, to the ravaging winds Saturday, to Sunday's calm after the storm — in just 97 seconds below. Becca Stanek
