    Blizzard Time-lapse in CT


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Kathleen Burns and Stephen Pretak created a time-lapse video of the northeast storm that hit their area of New London, Connecticut, on February 7. In order to create this time-lapse video, they set up their shot before the storm set in and adjusted their camera to shoot one shot per minute until they filled their 16 gigabyte memory card with more than 36 hours of footage. She says when they first viewed the video what she was most impressed over was watching the sky for the last 30 seconds. 'Not only does the storm dissipate so rapidly, but once it has cleared you can actually see the earth turn while the shadows move through the white city. It's very beautiful,' she said. Despite the beauty of the film, she says the blizzard was by far the worst storm they had seen in years. 'Last time I remember a storm of this magnitude was probably in 2002. Winds were very high, areas are still being plowed and cleaned,' she said.
