A record breaking amount of snow has fallen in the US.

In Erie, Pennsylvania 165 cm of snow has fallen within a single week.

In Chicago temperatures have plummeted to -3 Fahrenheit or - 16 degrees Celsius.

For drivers, ice on the roads has been treacherous. In Boise, Idaho Police closed the interstate after a dozen cars crashed into each other.

But this hasn't meant people aren't taking advantage of the unusual weather.

Video’s posted on social media showed the ways people have been enjoying themselves – including skiing behind cars.

Last year's popular trick of watching boiling water instantly freeze has been popular.

Those brave enough have even been driving into the snow drifts.
