After making its mark on the Midwest on Monday, Winter Storm Stella is now bearing down on the Northeast, where it is expected to blanket the entire corridor from New York City to Boston with up to two feet of snow. As Stella arrives, people have created "snowmageddon" 2017 memes and tweets to entertain others as they wait out the storm, hopefully from the comfort of their own homes.
Winter Storm Stella is expected to absolutely wallop the Northeast. Portions of eight states are under blizzard warnings and much of the rest of the region is under a winter storm warning. Many states have also declared snow emergencies, citing transportation, logistical, and safety issues associated with the storm.
While Stella is certainly a very serious storm, social media users are also attune to its more amusing aspects. Resultantly, they have taken to Twitter to share funny commentary on everything from grocery store chaos to meteorological predictions and much more. Thus, without further ado, take a minute to enjoy some "snowmageddon" memes and tweets as Stella makes her mark on the U.S.
