    gsager and 14 other iReporters contributed to Open Story: Massive blizzard slams Northeast

    Blizzard of 2013 MA Time Lapse


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     gsager explains how he made this video: 'I have a sliding glass door that faces the porch, so I found a spot about 2 feet up, cleaned the glass, set the camera up on a tripod, and surrounded it with black construction paper to block glare from the TV. I found the longest USB cable I had and hooked the camera up to my computer. Then I used the remote shooting software from Canon that came with the camera and had it take a picture every 5 minutes. I think it was 447 frames in all, starting around 5 a.m. on Friday 2/8 and going through 10:30 a.m. on Saturday 2/9.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    Here is the Blizzard of 2013 as seen from my east-facing porch in Marlborough, MA. 29 hours total. Each second of video is 30 minutes of real time.
    We ended up with about 30 inches of snow.
