Yes, Miami is cold. But at least we don’ t have to worry about a bomb cyclone

Miami is cold.

For us, that is.

A Northerner would trade places with us in a New York minute right about now.

Yep, as we yelp about temperatures in the 40s, some unfortunate souls are literally trudging to work amid a 24 degree snowstorm of epic proportions.

The weather is so bad up there experts are throwing around the scariest meteorological term we’ve ever heard in a while: “bomb cyclone.”

Yikes.

In simplest terms, the snow is going to come down so bad (up to 17 inches), it’ll be like a bomb going off. Popular Science describes it like this: “The official term is explosive cyclogenesis, or bombogenesis, a phenomenon that occurs during an extremely low pressure system.

This storm has forced roughly 3,000 flight cancellations, already. Times Square looks like a tundra (only with taxis).

In other words, we have it pretty good, people. It’s friggin 54 degrees; that’s 22 degrees above freezing.

Granted, Thursday night, the low is 40. So put on the heat, cozy socks and a sweater.

And just stop.
