Giant panda Tian Tian woke up this morning to a lot of snow, and unlike the rest of the eastern United States, he was pretty excited about it.

Tian Tian, an 18-year-old, 120kg male panda, lives at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo park in Washington, DC.

Washington is expected to receive a pounding during blizzard Jonas, but that doesn’t bother Tian Tian — he has a thick woolly coat that can keep him warm anywhere, even in the snowy mountains of China.

According to the National Weather Service, this blizzard could rank near the top 10 to ever hit the region.
