Last year I shared my 7 People on Facebook on Snow Days, but these people aren’t just on Facebook, now they are on twitter tweeting tips, on Instagram sharing photos and of course on Facebook bitching up a storm. Love them, hate them or just plain amused by them they are there every damn time it snows.
Here are 6 more people on social media when it snows.
This person can’t help but share every post that the local weatherman has posted for the last 3 days, in fact he’s been posting the forecasting accumulations map long before most meteorologists were. He knows every computer model and forecast and what to expect in your area, even though he doesn’t live there. You will know him by his status update: “I’m going with the euro model calling for 12-18 inches, make sure you got your snow shovels”.
The “It’s Just Snow” person
This person likely lived up north once for a minute in the summer but they totally think that they know everything there is to know about snow and that everyone around them is overreacting. They are laughing at the people running to the grocery store and don’t see what all the fuss is about. They do not want to read one more Facebook post about the snow storm, except of course their own. Likely status update: “Snow in January is not news worthy, maybe if it was snowing in July”.
The I’ve Lived Where it Really Snows Person
This person actually did live up north and witness feet of snow. They are oblivious to everyone else’s chaos. Sure they’ve seen 24 inches of snow before they used to call that Saturday in January. The only snow supply they are purchasing is a bottle alcohol to have to deal with all of the assholes who don’t know how to drive when it snows. Likely status update: “Where I come from we don’t declare a snow emergency for a dusting of snow, oh well time to crack a beer and deal with all of these crazies”.
They are mad that the snow is ruining the “amazing day” they had planned. Then they are mad that the snow isn’t as deep as they said it would be or that it has changed to rain. They are sad their kids aren’t out playing in the snow because it’s too windy, they are annoyed when their kids can play in the snow and then they come in and make everything wet. If there is something to complain about they will find it. Likely status update: “This snow storm would be perfect if only I hadn’t had the best day ever planned and DS would stop asking to build a snowman, I’m so upset their isn’t enough snow for him to build one”.
Did you see her picture on Instagram or maybe it was twitter, oh wait there it is on Facebook. This person can’t get enough of taking pictures of the snow and thinks she is the first person to take a picture of her wine glass in the snow. She’s also blowing up your news feed with pictures of every activity her family has done that day. Kids in the snow, check. Roaring fireplace, check. Mug of hot chocolate, check. Likely status update: “The snow is just so beautiful I can’t help but take pictures of it”.
You say snow storm and they say snow beers. At the first word of snow they are at the liquor store stocking up. They are posting pictures of their fridge packed full of beer, wine and rumchata. To them a snow storm is just an excuse to start drinking in the morning, because they don’t have anywhere to be. Likely status update: “You can keep your milk and bread, I’ve got my craft beer and bourbon”.
What kind of social media snow person are you?
