Some people weren’t all that impressed with what Winter Storm Helena brought to the country. Even though it was touted as being a big deal, for many it just hasn’t really lived up to the hype. So of course, the Internet’s response is to make funny memes about the storm.
Here are the best memes that you don’t want to miss.
First, many people that that Atlanta was going to be just buried in snow. It didn’t work out that way:
For some reason, people went crazy buying milk and bread. (Which is a little weird, because of the power goes out, the milk won’t last very long.) Stores were sold out, fast.
Meanwhile, Texas wasn’t hit too bad. Every time a big winter storm hits, people in Texas like to sit back and brag about how great it is for them.
This scene from Star Wars showing how Luke had to get warm has stuck with people. It’s also similar to a tactic that Leonard DiCaprio used in The Revenant. So it’s become pretty popular:
The storm wasn’t nearly as bad in a lot of places as people feared, so now they’re bragging about being survivors:
If you didn’t make it to the store in time, you might have missed out on some delicious, yummy milk and bread. By the way, CNN reported that this milk and bread trend might have started from a winter storm in New England in 1950, when newspapers talked about milk being a big shortage for everyone and bread being “doled out” in stores.
If you were struck particularly hard by the storm, like the people in this picture, don’t worry — you’ll be able to rebuild one day.
Meanwhile, some people are kind of annoyed at their meteorologists. How did they get it so wrong?
All in all, it looks like we’ll make it through the first great blizzard of 2017.
