A long line of Bulldogs hit the road from the Mack Truck Customer Center in Allentown, Pennsylvania in October of 2012. The parade begins with oldest Macks and progresses to the newest, and includes a few other brands as well.
Winter Storm Jonas wreaked havoc on Washington D.C., dumping more than 20 inches of snow on the capital over the weekend.
But that was just the start of the problems, as city workers are now left with the challenge of clearing the 3.49billion cubic feet of the wintry downfall away.
After a record breaking winter in Boston, snow was still on the streets in July.
So D.C. officials brought in reinforcements to help quickly melt it away - the Snow Dragon.
The machine was brought in from Indianapolis, according to CBS News, as the snow shower subsided. Diggers carry snow to huge containers wheeled in on trailers that act like enormous hot tubs.
The snow is then dumped in and melted by hot water baths. The leftovers and then released through drains around the vehicle.
The contraptions have been used all around the country to help clear-up efforts. More recently, the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) used it to clear up snow from railway lines in Philadelphia.
According to the company's website: 'Snow and ice are deposited onto a melting pan that is fabricated above a hot water bath, containing heat exchanger tubes.
'The burner fires into the tubes heating the water, similar to a boiler burner type system. This creates a 100 per cent totally enclosed system, thus not allowing any burner/flame contaminants to be introduced to the discharge or water bath.
The 'snowstorm of a lifetime' is set to swamp the Northeast this week, dumping as much as two feet of snow in some cities. The National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center is warning of heavy, 'perhaps crippling' snow in the mid-Atlantic region, including the Baltimore, Washington and Philadelphia metro areas. Although it's still early, computer forecast models all see a windy, strong slow-moving storm hitting the entire region as of Friday night.
Forecasters claim it has the potential to develop into a blizzard unlike any seen for 20 years. With high tides, severe flooding is expected on the coast. And winds will reach 60mph causing power outages, forecasters predict.
