What's been dubbed Winter storm Hercules has made headlines this week, hitting the East Coast with incredibly chilly temperatures and insane amounts of snow in a very short period of time. Heavy snowfall first hit the area around Thursday, and people across the Northeast took to social media to share pictures of the storm. Since then, areas north of Boston have seen almost two feet of snow, temperatures in parts of Connecticut have ranged from -5 degrees Fahrenheit to -20, and NYC's been hit by nearly 10 inches in 24 hours. Following the first day of the storm, new NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio was spotted shoveling snow outside his home, and his son, Dante, joked with friends about requesting a snow day from his dad. Meanwhile, cities like Washington DC and Chicago are feeling the effects, and The Weather Channel reports that another storm is coming. As Winter continues to make itself known, take a look at some of the most striking pictures from the Hercules storm.
