22 Instagram Captions About The Snow That Are Puns, So You Can Laugh Through The Cold

Ad failed to load

In case you missed it, it's winter — so, you know, it's cold. I'm never especially thrilled about cold weather (really, who is?), and each year I'm reminded of just how generally terrible this season can be — especially in places that get snow. Every December, I think maybe we'll escape the nastiness of a giant blizzard or a seemingly eternal cold front, and every December, I'm proven wrong. I know this all sounds a little dramatic, but if you've lived through as many bad winters as I have, you know that these conditions really are enough to bring life to a screeching halt, so that all you can do is break out the fuzzy slippers and prepare to snap some pics of some serious snow outside. To that end, I've compiled a list of 23 Instagram captions about snow that are puns. Because if you have to be snowed in, you might as well have some so-bad-they're-good jokes to laugh at.

I've gotta admit that 'gramming isn't often the first thing on my mind when trying to negotiate whether or not my meetings are cancelled for snow or figuring out how I can successfully get from my apartment to the pharmacy without wiping out on a patch of black ice. But, if a storm is serious enough, I could end up with plenty of time on my hands. And what cures cabin fever better than a punny Instagram post? Really, nothing.
