In honor of a massive nor’easter on the eastern part of the United States, in what looks to be a potential historic winter storm - with a meteorologist forecast of up to 25 inches for places such as Washington DC, Philadelphia and New York - we at ICTMN have decided that now is the appropriate time for a round of #Blizzard2016 ‘It’s so cold’ jokes.
In fact, it's so cold at ICTMN:
We have to warm up our computers for half an hour before we can start typing stories…
Tribal elders have told us we are not allowed to go out and report without putting on our Pendletons first…
Our photographers are getting their eyes stuck to their cameras like Ralphie’s friend who got his tongue frozen to the pole from the Christmas Story…
Our poor photographer has not yet been able to thaw this camera off of his eye.
Our executive editor’s foul language is frozen in steam...
Well, you get the point.
Last year, when we reported on Rob Fairbanks' Leech Lake weather report and why it’s so cold in Indian Country - we saw a plethora of hilarious comments from our readers.
