7 'Juno' Quotes That Are Surprisingly Applicable To The Winter Storm Of The Same Name

If people are talking about Juno this week, odds are they aren't referring to the snappy Diablo Cody-written film about an endearingly sardonic pregnant teen. The northeast is gearing up for Winter Storm Juno with the usual amount of panic that accompanies an expected blizzard: battery stockpiling, supermarket rushes, and generalized anxiety about the prospect of being snowed in. While Ellen Page's character never dealt with any of these things, she did manage to keep her quirky sense of humor throughout some seriously heavy adult issues.

But even if Juno the winter storm and Juno the movie have little in common on paper, there are a few Juno movie quotes that apply to the blizzard surprisingly well. If nothing else, we can lovingly refer to this meteorological event as fertile myrtle.

On Being Snowed In

“I never realize how much I like being home unless I’ve been somewhere really different for a while.”

The one silver lining to getting stuck at home in a blizzard is the fact that you can luxuriate in not leaving the house: one of life’s simplest pleasures.

On The Awesome Power Of Weather

“Yeah, I’m a legend. You know, they call me the cautionary whale.”

This is just what I imagine a threatening climatic force saying to the world, as it inches along the doppler radar. But, ya know, one with a sense of humor.

On The Storm's Namesake

“My dad had this weird obsession with Roman or Greek mythology or something and he decided to name me after Zeus’ wife”.

As you may know, this round of winter storms have all taken the names of Greek mythological figures. I guess we can consider the storm’s "dad" The Weather Channel.

Anthropomorphizing The Storm

“Apparently she was supposed to be super beautiful but really mean, like Diana Ross.”

‘Cause snow is super pretty, but vicious when you try to travel in it.

If The Storm Had Human Thoughts

“I don’t know what kind of girl I am.”

Even hellish winter weather phenomena get insecure sometimes. Also, we won’t really know what kinda person she is til the snowfall comes.

If The World Could Talk Back To The Storm

“Don’t think it’s yours just cuz ya marked it with your urine!

The “it” we’re referring to here it the planet, and the “urine” could be analogous to snow. Also, I guess the forces of nature have a right to mark nature as their territory.

On Weather Shenanigans

“I mean, I’m already pregnant, so what other kind of shenanigans could I get into?”

Welp, the shenanigan possibilities are boundless. There’s hail. Slush. Black ice. She can literally get into a litany of other kinds of shenanigans.
