The tsnownami is no longer a-comin’, but has officially begun! Just look at it outside right now—all those flakes a-fallin’. There’s nothing we can do about it.

The snow is slamming us, and bearing down in a cold and potentially life-threatening manner. Massive, it takes aim—dumping snow and packing wind, threateningly. It’s already begun snarling the transportation and disturbing the news cycle.

No regular storm, obviously, but a huge, powerful monster, ruthlessly carving a path across the country while it hits and chomps us. It’s a blizzard, tasking the resources and testing our patience. We must brace ourselves, batten down the hatches and hold on. Take it seriously! “Do not travel!” warns the National Weather Service, using exclamation points for emphasis. Just stay inside. Don’t try to fly anywhere—you can’t.
