It's wild out there: How are you dealing with Storm Jonas?

Clare Cullen

As Storm Jonas became the second-biggest snow storm on record in New York, affected Americans across the country dealt with the weather in different ways.

Some grabbed sleds and snowboards and played in the snow during the city lockdown while at least one woman dressed up as Elsa from Frozen to take a (fantastic) picture in front of the snow-covered Washington Monument.

As the tail end of Storm Jonas treats us to wild, wet weather and windy mornings, we want to see how you're coping with the storm.

The storm dropped snow along the US east coast from the Gulf Coast to New England, with near-record snowfalls tallied from Washington DC to New York City. Sadly, at least 31 people have died as a result of the storm. The deaths occurred in car accidents, from carbon monoxide poisoning and from heart attacks while shovelling snow.
