As always with big winter storms that hit populated areas, like the Southeast and Eastern Seaboard this weekend, there's always some wonderful, or scary, or eye-rolling videos of the goings-on during and after the storm.

The storm dumped a huge swath of ice and snow from Mississippi to New England, causing all kinds of problems and delights.

So we have videos!

First, here's a video compilation of the havoc after the icy storm in Birmingham, Alabama:

It wasn't much better in Raleigh, North Carolina. The people at the beginning of this video should have just given up:

The storm moved up into New England during the Saturday, contributing to this big pileup on Interstate 91 near New Britain, Connecticut:

Now, some fun! The Georgia Tech swim team had their meet canceled because of the snow, and they were stranded by the storm in a Virginia hotel.

So they had their own unique swim relay in the snow.


For those of you who really want to know what a LOT of snow looks like, not just that few inches in the South, check out the lake effect snows in this video near Watertown, New York earlier this week:
