Hey — did you know it's snowing here on the East Coast in the United States? You've probably seen just a few tweets or Facebook posts, here or there, maybe even a new story or two. Winter Storm Jonas is here and it is no joke, folks! Even celebrities are caught up in all this blizzard hype, especially those who call some of the worst-hit cities like New York City and Washington D.C. home. It's comforting to know that celebrities react to Winter Storm Jonas pretty much like everyone else: By taking to Twitter and Instagram. They're snowed in just like the millions people in the path of this massive snowstorm.

Of course, we can't talk about Winter Storm Jonas without bringing up some of the most hilarious references we've seen to the storm before it even began snowing — we're talking about the Jonas brothers and Weezer. The Jonas brothers made lots of Winter Storm Jonas jokes on Twitter in the lead up to the storm. Meanwhile, Weezer was keen to jump on the obvious "My Name Is Jonas" reference. But all joking aside, Jonas is wreaking havoc right now, and some NYC-based celebs are tweeting and Instagramming their way through it all right now. Here's the rundown...


The Jonas brothers just couldn't resist:
