Amtrak commuters got to experience their own mini-blizzard when an Amtrak train blasted through fresh snow covering the train tracks at the Rhinecliff-Kingston station outside of New York City.

One commuter captured video of the whole episode unfolding on his phone and later added it to YouTube with a slow motion effect — making the whole situation more dramatic (and hilarious). In the video, other commuters can be seen taking similar videos with their phones. Apparently, the videos were more important than taking cover, as many commuters remained close to the edge of the tracks until the last minute.

As the train races into the station, the commuters get pummeled by the flying snow. Hopefully, the videos were worth it. Check out the video below to judge for yourself:
