On Saturday, the US National Weather Service recorded 26.8 inches of snowfall in Central Park in New York City.

An igloo built in a New York back garden and posted on Airbnb for $200  a night was briefly marketed as the coolest destination for a city break in the wake of Winter Storm Jonas.  "Dripping with ingenuity and alt-lifestyle aura lays this snowpocalypse's most desirable getaway.

"Built completely by hand all natural. Come experience this chic dome-style bungalow with Bae," read the listing, using a hip term for loved one.

Or at least that's what it said until the accomodation listings website decided the joke had gone too far, and removed the igloo from its site.
