A few years back in Colorado, this guy got caught in a hailstorm that destroyed his windows and totaled his car. Sometimes life just isn't fair.
We hope all of you Floridians are staying safe before Hurricane Dorian is expected to make landfall as a category 4 storm on Monday. In the mean time, when a sh*tty situation strikes, why not try to make the best of it? Apart from getting the eff out of the Hurricane's pathway, there are always memes to calm those nerves for a bit!
Nearly 50 lightning strikes happened during a record setting heat-wave in the Arctic in July. This was in addition to over 1000 of them hitting over a wider area during a massive storm. This was one of the furthest examples of lightning strikes anywhere in the world in weather forecasters memories, with the closest being in Fairbanks, Alaska. While lightning strikes do occur in the Arctic, they are much rarer in such frequency, because the air is usually to cold and dry for such a major storm to be able to form.
These memes and tweets are for the brave souls out here surviving the 2019 Polar Vortex affecting the Midwest and the East Coast of the United States, which has forced businesses to shut down for the week and flights to be cancelled. With temperatures far below zero degrees Fahrenheit, all we can really urge you to do is to not go outside unless 100% absolutely necessary and hunker down with these memes!
