The Northeast United States’ historic weekend snowfall produced major headaches—knocking out power, cancelling school and work— but it also made for some wonderful video (not to mention great sledding).
Lots of folks found ways to put Mother Nature’s fury into a lighter perspective (See blizzard photos from our readers).
Here are our favorite videos:
1. Snowboard + camera + Boston’s Beacon Hill after 24 inches of snow = this:
4. Anyone who has had their street-parked car plowed-in can identify with this video from Cambridge, MA. When a backhoe arrives to start digging and removing snow, it appears it will help. But …
5. There’s always someone out there thinking ahead of the storm. This filmmaker tried a twist on the practice of aiming a projector outside for a special visual effect, aiming the projector at the falling snow for a blissful escape experience.
6. Sometimes the simple, silent videos get to the point most effectively. We liked this one from a TV weatherman in Connecticut, recorded on his back deck, to close out our selection (the last ten seconds are the best).
