It’s snowing in the South and people are losing their damn mindsOn January 4, 2018 by Maybell
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for fear of nuclear war with North Korea, you may have heard that a winter storm is developing on the East Coast of the United States.
While that storm is shaping up to be a doozy, it’s already reaching headlines for bringing some rare chilly weather and frozen precipitation to the South. Yes, folks, today it snowed in Florida.
Not used to the snow, Floridians were pretty pumped to see the white fluffy stuff for a change.
This pup, however, was very confused.
South Carolina also saw a good amount of snow.
And so did North Carolina.
People in Georgia were trying their very best to make snowmen.
Some were better than others.
The fire chief for Valdosta, Georgia, even made a snow angel.
Snow-covered palm trees are a pretty rare sight.
Ill-equipped and unaccustomed, some roads were closed with just a dusting.
A fountain even froze in Atlanta.
While this is exciting to many who live in the South and rarely see snow, this storm is part of an explosive “bomb cyclone” that’s expected to pummel the rest of the East Coast Wednesday night into Thursday.
Snow will overspread the region tonight/Thursday morning & last most of the day. Heavy snowfall is possible around 9am to 4 pm w/ snowfall rates near 2 inches an hour. Travel may become difficult due to poor vsbys & snow covered roads. Blowing & drifting snow is also possible. pic.twitter.com/BSF9XzJj6f

Be careful, and stay warm out there. With love, from sunny Los Angeles.
