While Washington D.C. residents hunkered down on Saturday as Winter Storm Jonas battered a large swath of the Eastern Seaboard, one capital dweller was unfazed by #blizzard2016.

In a 30-second video posted by the Smithsonian’s National Zoo Saturday morning, giant panda Tian Tian took advantage of his naturally warm coat and basked in the snowy bliss of the season’s first major storm.
Keepers captured the 19-year-old fluffy bear’s unabashed excitement for the fluffy white stuff as he rolled around in 13 inches of snow that blanketed the area.
By contrast, panda cub Bei Bei was less amused by the conditions when he was introduced to the snow for a few minutes, zookeepers said on Instagram.
“Keepers said he wasn’t quite sure what to make of the powdery snow and made his way back inside quickly.”
