New Yorkers woke up to a scene straight out of the movie "The Mist" on Wednesday because the city was covered by a snow squall. But everyone had one question on their minds; What's a snow squall anyways?
Following the snow squall that moved through, Central Park picked up 0.4" of snow. ❄️— NWS New York NY (@NWSNewYorkNY) December 18, 2019
This was a pretty shocking view to wake up to, so people didn't miss the chance to share photos and videos of this moment.
Seems like this unbelievable weather event surprised people a lot.

However, it clearly made the Time Square look like it's a scene from Blade Runner 2049.
