If you'll be in the northeast anytime over the next few days, make sure you're ready for Winter Storm Stella. New York, Washington D.C., Boston and are set to be pummeled by a high-impact snowstorm, bringing up to a foot and a half of snow throughout Monday and Tuesday. If you're going to be stuck inside, you might as well check out these Blizzard 2017 memes to keep yourself occupied while you stay warm.
Stella is expected to hit the northeast on Monday night, and it'll continue throughout Tuesday until the early hours of Wednesday. Winds may reach 50 miles per hour from the New York City metro to parts of southern New England, creating blizzard conditions, and coastal flooding may occur in Jersey Shore, Cape Cod, Long Island and other east coast beaches.
Needless to say, this is going to make traveling a nightmare. Flooding will likely cause road closures, as will downed power lines, trees, traffic accidents and a general absence of visibility. You should also expect major delays at airports throughout the area.
In short: You'll want to stay at home if possible — that is, if it's even an option to leave the house to begin with. If you do find yourself stuck at home, comfort yourself with some memes about the blizzard that's preventing you from opening the front door.
It's true — this storm had bad timing.
Welcoming The Storm
the grocery store near my apartment stopped selling the chocolate chip cookies i like now i hope i die in the blizzard— Matt Bellassai (@MattBellassai) March 13, 2017
Not the most unreasonable reaction in the world.
Meanwhile, In Boston
When you wake up & hear Boston's going to get 18 inches of snow on Tuesday... pic.twitter.com/2hkCuEAQ8o— Only In Boston (@OnlyInBOS) March 12, 2017
This is pretty impressive as far as meme mashups go.
I CAN'T FIND ME ON A MAP SO TELL ME EXACT SNOW TOTALS AT MY HOUSE EVEN THOUGH I SEND YOU DEATH THREATS WHEN YOUR COVERAGE PREEMPTS ZOO COURT— Dennis Mersereau (@wxdam) March 13, 2017
There's a lot going on here.
Make Sure To Prepare
All right, this is less of a meme and more so just a picture of a cute dog in the snow. But you're still glad you saw it, aren't you?
Making It Political
It's 70 degrees in New York the first day of March. It's supposed to snow on Friday. It's almost as if the climate has... changed— Scott Howard (@MrHoward) March 2, 2017
Yeah, it is almost like that! How odd!

This is a screenshot from Get Out, and it's especially pertinent given that [spoiler alert] within the world of the film, the character depicted is from New York City.
Bring It On!
I can only hope to one day be as excited about anything as that cat is about the snow.
Maybe It Won't Happen
I want Trump to tweet that a big snow storm is coming to NYC on Tuesday. That way I'll know it's not true— Pete Catapano (@pcatapano) March 11, 2017
Unfortunately, Trump has yet to tweet about the storm, so it's probably going to happen.
Don't Overreact, Except Maybe Do
But no, really, this is going to be a huge storm.
The New Normal?
Yesterday: Beautiful mid spring day great to bring your dog out to the park— Damian Rucci (@damianrucci) March 10, 2017
Today: Snow Blizzard from the sunken place
It's not supposed to work this way.
We Deserve This
Mother Nature: Oh, so y'all know about global warming n still voted for man who calls it a "hoax"?! I got something for y'all. #blizzard2017— Resistance Alien 👽 (@stephen_clash) March 12, 2017
UGH! But, yeah, basically.
It's Okay To Be Dramatic About This
This is not overreacting.
You know there's a storm coming when the yogurt is gone.
Airports won't be that much fun at all.
At Least Some People Might Enjoy It
Any cat that can deal with the snow is pretty impressive.
The Most Helpful Type Of Forecast
Because that's really the most pressing question, right?
The most important thing during any blizzard is to stay safe. Finding good memes about the blizzard is a close second, though.
