Winter Storm Twitter Updates (because we all need to be reading Twitter updates from people hiding insides their closets while we are driving)
Dangerous Storm Ahead (I see Chicken Little scurrying across the snow from my office window)
Crippling Ice Threat (Apparently news/weather forecasters have no idea what it’s like to be crippled- to them it’s a day without coffee)
A Travel Nightmare (A travel nightmare is a car sick kid, or three kids under the age of six screaming from their car seats, or getting a case of WHY DID I EAT THAT in the middle of nowhere- to- stop)
Colossal Winter Storm Takes Aim (I'm thinking the person who came up with this one has been called a Colossal something more than once.)
|They have assembled a group of Colossals|
Thundersnow caught on cam (Yep, they were spying…..)
Live in the Winter Beast (now they are talking to the hubby again…)
Massive Winter Storm Begins (Batten down the hatches!! – I love saying that, it reminds me of my Mom when we would go on our boat in the middle of Lake Erie and waves were 5-6’. THEN we had to batten down the hatches…)
Share your Winter Weather Photos (because we have scared everyone half to death and they are cowering in their basements, it’s not doing anything outside and we need pictures from like 10 years ago to show there was some weather – a little touching up should do the trick!)
Groundhog Day Storm (This storm may or may not see its shadow)
Blizzard Charges East (Is this supposed to scare me?)
|Carried away in the Grahics Department much?|
Two Dozen States in Line of Fire (We are talking snow and ice as opposed to actual battlegrounds?)
Blizzard Takes Chicago (CRAP! Now where will I go for good shopping??)
100 million People will be Impacted by this Storm (for years we will be laughed at by foreigners)
Blanketing the Country (I hope it’s a warm fuzzy one – maybe even a Snuggie?)
Live: Historic Snow (The only time you will see history LIVE!)
We have video footage of people at the grocery store, and why is there no milk, do you really think Milk is the most important thing to have on hand in a winter storm?
We have video footage of newscasters in the snow, one had snow all over her (a plow had just passed) “Hey new guy, guess where your headed?!”
Apparently everyone forgot that we are in WINTER. It snows, there can be ice, your drive is a little longer than normal.
I actually got a an email from a client who was frantically telling everyone she was on her way home ahead of the storm and wouldn’t be in tomorrow. (Good way to plan ahead)
Just a little cynical – How are You?
