Polar Vortex Has People Coping With The Frigid Temperature The Best Way They Know How: Memes

People from the Midwest to the East Coast are using humor to beat the cold.

Published January 31st

As the polar vortex continues traveling from the Midwest to the East Coast, many parts of the country are experiencing freezing temperatures that are colder than the Arctic.

In some parts of the country, schools have closed due to the double-digit-below-zero weather. The cold temps have not only resulted in more people staying inside, but it’s also produced some hilarious winter memes. 

  1. Rapper Cardi B shared an almost-too-true-to-be-funny meme about how this weather seems to have accompanied a specific person
  2. In places like Chicago, people are demonstrating the cold weather by posting video of boiling water freezing in mid-air and frozen home goods or articles of clothing

    According to CBS News, "some 100 million people will experience temperatures near or below zero." The cold weather is so severe, just exposing your skin to the weather for a few minutes can result in frostbite.

  3. From Illinois to New York, it's clear no one was ready for winter to truly come
