Unless you are currently
suffering heatstroke from this scorching hot Australian summer, you’ll be aware the U.S. has just had one of the biggest storms in its history.
Storm Jonas hit over the weekend, and there was a lot of snow, people.
Actually, it was more than a lot. Some areas of Washington were reportedly covered in snow 42-inches deep.
WATCH: Babies playing in snow for the first time (post continues after video).
Now as a Melburnian, I don’t know much about blizzards, but I do know this:
42-inch-deep snow = Very cold/large inconvenience = People staying indoors for foreseeable future
I also know that despite their flawless skin and sparkly teeth, celebrities are human people who are too affected by the weather, so there were a few A-listers bored at home this weekend. WHICH CAN ONLY MEAN ONE DAMN THING: Cute, snowy and staged Instagram uploads. Heaps of ’em.
Like this happy snap of the newly-engaged
Mariah Carey, for example:
Is anyone else impressed by Mariah’s ability to rock a bitta cleavage in a onesie? Because I feel like finding a Cleavage Friendly Onesie would not be an easy feat.
An honourable mention also goes to our very own
Joe Hockey, who now calls the U.S. home and couldn’t resist taking a snow selfie (snelfie) out the front of his McMansion.
Revealing onesies and booted treasurers aside, here’s a collection of the best celebrity pics taken during Storm Jonas.
Oh, I’ve gone to the liberty of rating each photo out of 10 for level of snelfie-ness. Just because.
( Post continues after gallery.)
Much snow, very fluffy. I also like her red headphones. 10/10 snelfie. (@drewbarrymore)
Good amount of snow in photo, but Kate is in the background and I’d really prefer her front and centre. Expressions and beanies make up for aforementioned poor image composition = 8/10 snelfie. (@katehudson)
Jenni/JWOWW from Jersey Shore
Okay, so she's so not an A-lister, and I don’t think I’ve actually heard JWOWW’s name since 2011, but her kid is so freakin’ adorable it’s breaking my computer screen. 9/10 snelfie. (@jwoww)
From our partner
Melissa Joan Hart
Very snow-y. Bonus points for inclusion of a toboggan. 7/10. (@melissajoanhart)
Just a really decent snelfie. Would have been a top scorer if Agron looked at the camera. Gets a 9/10. (@diannaagron)
Miss J Alexander
This is what happens when snow meets fashhhun. Isn’t a selfie = Deduction of 4 points. Inclusion of dog = Addition of 1 point. 7/10. (@miss_jalexander)
Neil Patrick Harris
Okay, so this isn’t a selfie either, but those kids are just… aw! My heart feels warm, you guys. Screw the rules, 10/10 snelfie. (@nph)
From our partner
Yep, freaking nailed it. It’s an 9.5/10 for you my friend. (@bethennyfrankel)
Okay, I like the hat. Don’t know who the other three people are. Am confused by Guy On The Right’s hair. 6/10 snelfie. (@joejonas)
Alright, Karlie, you’re a supermodel, we get it… but this is just questionable snow storm behaviour, I’m sorry. 2/10 snelfie. (@karliekloss)
Can somebody please get Karlie Kloss some pants and a coat? Please.
If I leave you with anything, let is be this magical creation:
Would you rather struggle through a heat wave, or a snow blizzard?
