THE ICE STORM COMETH: aka ICEPOCALYPSE 2017 aka EVERYONE'S LOSING THEIR DAMN MINDS

  1. I live in northeast Kansas, and we're expecting a major ice storm this weekend.
  2. Except that
  3. It could be snow
  4. Or just a little ice
  5. Or maybe even just rain.
  6. None of the meteorologists can agree because it's a very unpredictable weather system, but they all went for worst case scenario.
  7. I get that you want people to be prepared. I get it. I bought more candles and batteries and battery packs for our phones and food that doesn't have to be cooked just in case the powers out for a few days.
  8. I get that we've been through a major ice storm before in 2017. Believe me, I remember. Trying to keep 5 small kids warm and feed and entertained for five days without any electricity was no small feat.
  9. But I'm not running out to buy a generator I can't afford that I will only maaaybe use like so many people I know.
  10. Everybody needs to calm the fuck down. Gather up your blankets, put on your warm socks, pull out the board games, and RELAX.
