Winter Storm Jonas has dumped an incredible amount of snow on the East Coast this weekend, leading to some serious problems.

The nation's capital was among the cities hit hardest, and the snowstorm was too much for the Washington Redskins' practice bubble to handle. By Sunday morning, snow and strong winds had caused it to deflate.

After Snowzilla:

Washington issued a statement on the status of the bubble: "The heavy snow and high winds caused the Redskins indoor training facility to deflate. The facility will be re-inflated when the snow is removed and conditions improve."

It's a good thing the team is in offseason mode and doesn't have to rush to get the facility back up and running.
