PORTLAND, Ore. — Portland residents are making light of the heavy ice that blanketed the region Sunday.

A video uploaded to Instagram by user Sweetbabymelmel shows a man sitting in his ice-covered car. He then rolls the window down while the ice stays covering the window.

To get rid of the ice, the man then pops his head through, shattering the icy wall.

Icy weather snarled traffic throughout the city, causing accidents and delays.

An ice storm warning was in place over the weekend with rain on Sunday.

Parts of the country saw up to eight inches of snow more than a week before the beginning of winter.
