These Images Show Cities Recovering After Winter Storm Jonas

The storm is over, but there's a lot of work to do.

Two days after Winter Storm Jonas brought record-breaking snowfall to parts of the East Coast, residents finally got some relief on Monday and began digging out of their homes.

Some attempted to travel to work, while others took advantage of the snow day to grab a shovel and get to work elsewhere -- namely, by clearing snow. Images on social media showed cars still buried under snowdrifts, dagger-like icicles hanging from buildings and flooded streets.

Here are some photos that perfectly capture the aftermath of the storm.
