If you're on the east coast of the United States, chances are you're in the middle of procuring all the necessary supplies to weather winter storm Jonas, which is expected to dump over a foot of snow onto the mid-Atlantic region this weekend. While this will mark the first major snowfall this winter in this part of the country, history is full of examples of crippling blizzards. 

Yesterday, New York City-based blog Gothamist dug up the first-ever video footage of an NYC blizzard, from 1902. The film was recorded by the Edison Manufacturing Company. Enjoy, and stay warm!
