If you’re anything like me, you’re at home taking shelter from the snow. And if you’re anything like the Twitter users contributing to the trending hashtag #BOMBCYLONE — yes, it’s missing a C — you’re also at home, sheltered from the snow while also creating hilarious, relatable memes about the storm.
The epic nor’easter, which has been causing chaos since Wednesday, is now in full force along the Northeast, leading to school and office closures, flight cancellations, and, of course, empty aisles at grocery stores. But the silver lining of the “bomb cyclone” thus far is the internet’s reaction.
From political puns to never-ending interpretations of Winter Storm Grayson’s alias, here are the best memes to get you through the snowy storm.
