The Windy City didn’t handle the winter weather well.

And meanwhile in Michigan, cars are mounting one another.

Okay, that one was just a joke, but still.

And don’t even get us started on the Poconos.

One mode of transportation that would not be stopped by the snow is the train. Video shared with WBNG by Benjamin Robinson shows the powerful locomotive flipping Stella the bird in Owego, N.Y.

The video is strangely satisfying.


As you can see, it appeared from one angle that the train was entirely shrouded in snow, calling to mind “The Polar Express.”

Come to think of it, it also reminds of the train in the movie “Snowpiercer.”
