Here’s a thought exercise for you to undertake. When all is said and done, when the dust settles on the human experiment and the final words about us are written, which will there be more of: Polar Vortexes or Fast and Furious movies?
We are at seven Fast and Furious movies, and in all likelihood, we will end up with eight or nine. But that franchise started way back in 2001.
The first polar vortex occurred in 2013 and we’re at like our fourth or six already. And there’s another one coming this week. From the Capital Weather Gang:
Call it the ghost of the polar vortex, the polar vortex sequel, or the polar vortex’s revenge. Meteorological purists may tell you it’s not a polar vortex at all. However you choose to refer to the looming weather pattern, unseasonably chilly air is headed for parts of the northern and northeastern U.S at the height of summer early next week.
Bearing a haunting resemblance to January’s brutally cold weather pattern, a deep pool of cool air from the Gulf of Alaska will plunge into the Great Lakes early next week and then ooze towards the East Coast.
Sounds like a P fucking V to me.
Lows will be in the 40s and 50s on the East Coast, which is lovely, given the heat of the past two weeks. But still, man. You gotta start to believe the Earth is sincerely pissed at us. We should have never stopped praying to Gaia. Save us Gaia, save us from ourselves.
