The 12 most real tweets about #Blizzard2016

For those of us who live on the west coast (what what!), we must rely on Facebook and Twitter for updates on the blizzard that rocked the east coast this weekend. Luckily for us, even burrowed away in their homes these brave souls haven’t lost their sense of humor (or sense of irony). Below are a list of some of some of the funniest, sweetest, or just plain jaw-dropping tweets about #Blizzard2016.

Television critic James Poniewozik owned it with this Game of Thrones reference. Way to mix work and play, dude.

Keeping It Real

This girl gets it.

Well, this is downright creepy. I feel like this would be an opening scene from a remake of 28 Days Later.
