20 "Bomb Cyclone" Instagram Captions, Because The Snowy Struggle Is So Real

Ad failed to load

"Winter is coming" is an understatement if you consider this "bomb cyclone" that is about to take a toll on the East Coast. By now, you know that there is nothing "bomb" about it, and bracing yourself means thinking of every warm thing you've ever encountered in your entire life. Oh, you'll have pictures alright, and those "bomb cyclone" Instagram captions are going to be flowing better than the blood that's hardly reaching your icicle toes and hands.

According to USA Today, the storm is expected to hit Florida and Georgia, and will make its way up to the East Coast, sending temps to soul-shaking, cold degrees. New England is expected to get hit with some major snow. The "bomb cyclone" is also being referred to as a winter hurricane. And as much as a hurricane and snow seem like two contradicting weather events, it is a thing, apparently. This is not, I repeat, not one of those times where meteorologists might be a little wrong in regards to what's heading our way.

It's about to get super cold, and if you repel temps below 70 degrees like me, your nightmares have taken the reigns to your life and are about to show you what cold really is. Bundling up helps, of course, but if your mind can't shake the arctic temps that are hitting your face, you're sort of in trouble.

Documenting is a must, especially if you plan on having to be outside at some point, since different regions are going to be hit with various aspects of this chunk of cold weather. We can't wish the cold away, but we can surely make sure people feel our snowy struggles and maybe even laugh a little bit from our freezing pics and 'Gram captions.
