15 of the realest tweets about today's bomb cyclone
If you live on the East Coast, perhaps you noticed the extra terrible winter weather on your way to work this morning. (Or perhaps you stayed home today and are feeling really good about it.) And as expected, Twitter is abuzz with tweets about the bomb cyclone.
Currently raging its way north, the storm has grounded thousands of flights, and many government officials have declared emergencies and issued blizzard warnings. Some areas are projected to receive up to 18 inches of snowfall.
The storm started in the Southeastern United States — and by Southeastern, we really mean Southeastern. Live Science reports that Tallahassee, Florida got its first measurable snowfall in 28 years, coming in at 0.25 centimeters. From there, the storm continued to travel north.
As reported by NBC news, snow has been falling at a rate of 1 to 3 inches per hour along the East Coast. By the end of the day, certain parts of New York are expected to have up to nine inches of snow. Providence, Rhode Island and Boston may have up to 12 inches. And Portland, Maine could get up to 15 inches.
But, as in all times of uncertainty, Twitter is out in full force. Here are some of the most fiery tweets from the icy storm:
Stay safe out there, East Coasters.
