Ryan McElhenny began filming the video over his back deck in Purcellville in Virginia at 2 p.m. on Friday afternoon.

The snow starts to gather slowly as night falls but quickly begins to build.

By 2 p.m. Saturday, McElhenny's back deck completely disappears under the dense layer of snow.

Eventually, the view from the camera is obscured as the snow piles up past the window it is being filmed from.


Time to get shoveling!
