The East Coast is gearing up for the Winter Storm Jonas this weekend, but that doesn’t mean the rest of the country is not suffering from winter weather too. Although the rest of the country may not have a Jonas Brother-inspired blizzard coming their way, some lucky souls, like me, live in the Midwest and roll with winter storms all season long. I’ve found that one of the best ways to keep warm during an insane blizzard is to troll the Internet for hilarious blizzard memes.
This is, of course, after I’ve taken all the adult precautions like making sure I have plenty of canned food, wine, and a friend with a fireplace to run to should things get too The Day After Tomorrow for my liking. Personally, I find the best time to enjoy a good internet meme is when the meme’s subject doesn’t affect you personally. Hence why I’m having a field day with all the Winter Storm Jonas memes right now.
Although my fellow Midwesterners and I haven’t been subject to a full-on blizzard this season, it’s only a matter of time before one comes out way. I’m living in this frigid tundra day in and day out, and I deserve a laugh, right? And if you live somewhere with a temperate climate, feel free to point and laugh at all of the silly winter memes. There will come a day when you’re knee-deep in the blizzard life, and then you’ll understand.
1Even Babies Get The Winter Blues
Even though there might not be any sunshine, you can count on the white out to blind you.
2Wine > Everything
For some people, the only thing that matters is having enough wine to get you through the worst of the storm.
3Your Reliable Anchorman
If you live in the Midwest, this meme speaks to you on a deeply spiritual level. What I'd give for a reliable weather man.
4What's The Scenario?
Everyone in the green zone is laughing. Evil, evil laughs at everyone north of that red dotted line.
5Beer To Snow Ratio
Stop by your favorite brewery and stock up accordingly. Somewhere between one and five growlers should keep you stocked through the worst of it.
6Fifty Shades Of Fire
These meme fits perfect, since its a blizzard out there and well, you know... pic.twitter.com/yQjATcF8Tv— Aye-Aye-RON (@AJ_Patt) February 14, 2015
Throwing shade at Fifty Shades of Grey and a babyfaced Jake Gyllenhaal? Yeah, I love this meme.
Not that I'm opposed to living off of french toast for a weekend.
8Working Through The Winter
Street parking, the arch nemesis of everyone in a blizzard.
9Quick Thinking In A Blizzard
Not going to lie, I use this tactic even when I haven't lost power. Sometimes, I just run out of room in the freezer.
10Ditches Love Cars
This time of year, ditches love cars more than usual.
Hate snow? Grumpy cat feels your pain.
12I Just Saw A Snow Flake...
This meme made it onto a local news channel, which is how you know milk and bread are the hottest items during a blizzard.
13Bread And Milk!!!
Anyone on the East Coast is feeling this meme very deeply today.
14High Beams On
You don't even have to drive at high speeds in order to feel this phenomena, five miles an hour in a serious blizzard will do the trick.
15For The Dogs
Dogs might just get the shortest end of the stick, because they have to go outside in a blizzard. Unless you've miraculously potty-trained your dog, in which case you should probably be teaching a class on that.
In the midst of a blizzard, sometimes you have to go to the store. And when you do, you look like this.
17The Air Hurts My Face
Why am I living where the air hurts my face? I ask myself this several times a year.
18Delays Over Snow Days
Children of the Midwest, let's pour one out for all the insane blizzard conditions you had to go to school in.
19The Bread Lebowski
You might be the only one, Mr. Goodman. Because the bread shelf is straight up empty.
20Hide Yo Supplies
People get so paranoid when a storm comes to town that they buy out all the bread, milk, and eggs. What is with that?! Wouldn't it be better to buy canned items, boxes of pasta, and other non-perishables? I'll file this under things I will never understand.
21Game Of Snow
Perhaps the realest of all the memes, because with every good winter storm comes a thousand memes about said storm.
