Unless you have the king of luck that causes you to win the 350 million lottery or to live on a tropical island, you know
IT’S THE SNOWPOCOLYPSE OF 2011 !
I didn’t win the lotto and don’t live on a tropical island but I do live far enough south that my kid has never seen snow. Which means we own “jackets” not “coats” or “parkas” or “snow gear”. However the news is doing NOTHING BUT covering every stupid flake that falls on this country making stupid proclamations like, ” the entire country is blanketed in snow” or “snowstorm across the nation”.
Thus making my kid run to the window and say, ” so we really don’t live in America do we mom, this is sort of like your tooth fairy lie?”
After I hypnotized him and made him believe up was down and this was not the droid he was looking for. We watched the national news. It looked like this to us.
and of course those awesome graphics they throw up every 2 seconds basically screaming the END IS NEAR !!! But if you actually read them, they have a real message in there.
I went to my handy dandy weather radio to see if WE had anything to worry about. Apparently I can’t find this century on OUR weather radio.
I went ahead and took my van to the gas station to fill it up just in case ( since that’s what we do for hurricanes ) and I saw this.
My kid had to use the bathroom, because honestly there isn’t a public restroom he doesn’t want to visit which he knows damn well is one of my huge phobias.
So we got our supplies and hurried home to “hunker down” because again, that’s what we do for hurricanes.
Of course nothing happened. Not 1 single flake. But when the Fed Ex guy showed up he looked like this.
So that’s it, I spent way too much time making these graphics, and probably only I will find them hilarious. Blah, don’t get ate by a yeti this weekend.
