The nation’s capital is about to get pounded by a potentially historic snowstorm, and you can watch it in real time from the comfort of your own home.

This live video feed shows the view from the top of the Washington Monument. House Speaker Paul Ryan is also doing his own live video feed of the snow from his office all weekend, complete with a music soundtrack.

“Give your Netflix a break and check out the snowfall for a few minutes. Or a few hours. It’ll be here all weekend long,” Ryan’s feed says.

Washington, D.C. is expected to get upwards of 2 feet of snow through the weekend.
