VIDEO: Think you had a bad weather week?

If you thought you had a bad weather week, as many on the Eastern Seaboard did, you can at least be glad you weren’t shipping your car from Japan to Russia aboard the vessel Astongate in winter seas.

From a total cargo of 64 automobiles, 52 wound up in Davy Jones’ locker. The video — presumably shot by a crewmember — shows the last few being tossed across a snowy deck like Matchbox toys. Although the seas are rough, you have to wonder how well secured the vehicles were in the first place.

The clip is two years old, but we figured it would help you keep things in perspective, given the mess Mother Nature has thrown at so much of the country this winter.

A word of warning to auto lovers: It’s carnage.
