In honor of a massive nor’easter on the eastern part of the United States, in what looks to be a potential historic winter storm – with a meteorologist forecast of up to 25 inches for places such as Washington DC, Philadelphia and New York – we at ICTMN have decided that now is the appropriate time for a round of #Blizzard2016 ‘It’s so cold’ jokes.
In fact, it’s so cold at ICTMN:

Well, you get the point.
Last year, when we reported on Rob Fairbanks’ Leech Lake weather report and why it’s so cold in Indian Country – we saw a plethora of hilarious comments from our readers.
This said, here are some funny Native-influenced It’s so cold jokes…
