These Photos Show Cities Recovering After Winter Storm Jonas

Two days after Winter Storm Jonas brought record-breaking snowfall to parts of the East Coast, residents eventually got some relief on Monday and began digging out of their homes.

Some attempted to travel to work, while others took advantage of the snow day to grab a shovel and get to work elsewhere — namely, by clearing snow. Images on social media demonstrated vehicles still buried under snowdrifts, dagger-like icicles hanging from houses and flooded streets.

Here are some photos that perfectly capture the aftermath of the cyclone.
