A "polar vortex" is a giant, cold cyclone that explains why you are freezing right now if you're in the U.S. or Canada. A "Poehler vortex" is an Internet meme that explains why photos of Amy Poehler's head pasted on top of a weather map or a hypnotic spiral are popping up all over your Twitter feed. People are taking their precious time and making these fine pieces of digital art all in honor of a weather system and a comedienne who has a pun-worthy name.

We've rounded up some of the best Poehler vortex memes out there so that these people's hard work doesn't go unseen. Can you imagine if you poured your heart and soul into perfectly cutting out a picture of Amy Poehler's head, causing your cold, dry hands to cramp up, Ctrl+V-ing it right in the center of a Doppler map and no one seeing it? That would be devastating! So grab yourself a cup of hot cocoa, slip under a blanket, and prepare to be amazed at one of today's top internet crazes.
