Snowpocalypse 2017

The East Coast of the U.S. is getting hammered with another awful winter storm. Some places have gotten less snow than was predicted (and some have gotten even more); in some places, freezing rain is now raining down on top of the snow from overnight, creating hazardous road conditions and making electrical outages more likely as lines get weighed down with ice.

[Content Note: Video may autoplay at link] 18 million people are currently under a blizzard warning. "More than 7,800 US flights Monday through Wednesday were canceled and thousands of schools have closed. Winter storm warnings and watches have been hoisted over a region stretching from Ohio and West Virginia into Maine. Local and state authorities warned residents to be prepared and to avoid unnecessary travel as winds in some coastal areas could hit 50 mph to 60 mph, reducing visibility to zero."

Nearly 100,000 people are already without power. And more snow and ice is expected throughout the day.

Yuck cubed.
