FRANCE 24's correspondent in Washington DC, Philip Crowther, took this picture in the nation’s paralysed capital. “Once upon a time this was a car”, he mused.
Instagram user @lara.mand captured a unique opportunity to ski in Midtown Manhattan.
It was not a good day for grocery shopping across the East River, in Brooklyn.
Or in the historic Quincy Market in downtown Boston.
Much further inland, in Louisville, Kentucky, residents also enjoyed the fresh snow cover.
The snow also trapped cars in the cities of Philadelphia and Baltimore.
And the storm could even be seen from space. Toronto can be seen in the foreground, with Montreal on the left. Winter storm Jonas is rising in the background.
