#Blizzard2016 trended on Twitter as New Yorkers shared photos and videos of the blistering snowfall across in the city.
Storm Jonas hit in major parts of America on Friday and is expected to hit Washington, Philadelphia and more before it's through.
New Yorkers took to social media over the weekend to share their pics of the blizzard as the city ground to halt amid a state of emergency.
People shared timelapse videos showing the extent of the snow, selfies and shots of empty shop shelves as panicked shoppers cleaned out the aisles.
Glee star Dianna Agron was among those sharing snow selfies, posting a picture in which she's wrapped up in a large coat, covered in snow.
The New Jersey Governor tweeted that he "officially signed a state of emergency" for the State on January 23rd while CNN's Miguel Marquez attempted to give Theresa Mannion a run for her money with a snowy, windy weather report from Baltimore, Maryland, on the "hazardous" driving conditions.

Storm Jonas will makes its way to Ireland in the coming days.
However we will not experience snowfall - as the US is on the colder side of the Atlantic weather system.
