Record snowfall hit Erie, Pa. this week after the area saw 53 inches of snow over the last two days.

The snowfall was even captured on an incredible time-lapse video. The video shows very few people and even fewer cars. Those who do venture out struggle in the high snow. The footage also shows a haze of white as the snow continues to fall and it piles up on the ground.

The massive snowfall marked the largest two-day total in the state of Pennsylvania, according to the Associated Press. The area saw 34 inches on Monday alone before another 19 inches Tuesday brought it to the 54-inch record breaking snowfall.

The previous record was set in 1954 in Morgantown, Pa., which brought 44 inches of snow over two days.
