never even heard of a polar vortex by nebezial never even heard of a polar vortex by nebezial
but apparently one of those is   freezing the crap out of america now... so hang in there and stay  safe... because what i hear on the news here about the temperature there.....


and just in case somebody feels like going cleverly cynical and going all like, "so? its cold in other places and you don't make a fuss..."

1 this was motivated by hearing the words polar friggin vortex... i dont even know what the hell that is! (but you gotta admit it sounds friggin a magic attack or something)
2 i have many friends in us and canada so it  is of some personal concern to me.
and 3... i know a little something about  extreme weather hitting an unprepared region...yikes

Aand the last image from a 5k+ inbox stockpile is Elsa. I'm gonna have a frozen diarrhea.

Is she even old enough to drink?
Hm... Wait. If she didn't get drunk and still unwillingly caused a storm.. Covering it up with a lie about law infringement.. I KNOW WHAT HAPPEND! D: Frozen lake or castle wing seems achievable, but a continent? Damn...

you missed California, so... uh, i guess you didn't have enough shots? we could have used that cool air and snow.

I know this is SUPER late, but... as a meteoroloy-saavy person I must explain this! The polar vortex is the big upper level northern and southern low pressure systems that determines what winter weather will be like. For example, if it's super cold in the US, it's likely that Siberia and Europe will be a bit warmer. Consequently, if it's unusually warm in the US, expect Siberia to be dumped in beyond freezing weather. It's just how the vortex moves in the northern hemisphere due to the spin of the Earth (Coriolis Effect).

Normally there's two centers of the polar vortex, which balances things out, but you know the weather! At least it beats tornados and hurricanes, mind you...

For real? So it's like a meteorological Karmic balance thing... You learn something new every day
Lilac-DownDeep Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, over the years I've learned that almost everything about the weather is a meteorological Karmic balance thing. Even hurricanes and tornados. Most of the time it's just really violent.

We got freezing rain when it hit here in western NY state area.... pretty bad since the ground is still soaking wet so we can't till the ground for the crops yet.... but we'll stick it out! ^^

As long as there isn't a Flash freeze.  ;)  (save it for later)

But yeah, it's even more fun when it starts snowing after 30 degree (Celsius) weather during a thunderstorm. Actually, haven't seen that since I was 6- the northern end of the mid-continent is due for it again.

I LOVE it! The Polar Vortex IS real, you only hear about it when it causes these kinds of storms. But Tequila and girls? Definition of cuttin' loose and not knowing what you did!!  Great job!

"Polar vortex". Sounds like a video game combo. That would actually be pretty cool. (No pun intended)
bluerose0492 Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2014
It was awful!!!! I live in NY so it wasn't as bad but I hear the Midwest got bombed. I like how you drew Elsa to go with it! I had never heard of a polar vortex either, I think it was just meant to cause panic XD

Seriously, Elsa needs to get her drinking problem under control! We've had nothing but cold front after cold front after cold front!
ElvLuna Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2014

Somehow it's really ironic that the USA had such a horrible winter and here in Austria, we had the second mildest since more than 100 years. :D In Vienna snow fell for 3 to 5 days through the whole winter months, if I remember correctly.

I think Mother Hulda (in our regions Frau Holle) needs to stop cleaning all her blankets through the same damn window.

JasonRyder Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2014
Elsa needs to get her drinking problem under control! She keeps causing winter stroms and intense cold where it shouldn't be cold!!!
EagleGamer15 Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2014
HA! This was funny, and much appreciated. (Not about the cold, was just having a crappy day)
Kiggen Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2014
Ya know, I've lived here in the States all my life - grew up in New England, now live in Ohio - and I drive a truck all across the Midwest and Northeast, and I've seen some nasty winters... but this one, Damn! It's like, no sooner do we dig out of one storm, and another one whomps us again. So, thank you, sir, for your well-wishes; I do appreciate them.

And, no, I have never heard of a "polar friggin vortex" either - and I wish it stayed that way!

Every time one of my US friends mentions the polar vortex now, I link them this. <3

I dunno why her "fudgecicles" made me laugh so much lol

"Polar vortex" does sound pretty cool, and yes, the weather here keeps flip-flopping from the 50's to back down to single digits.
I'm just glad we have plenty of firewood!

Well she does look adorable, though I don't imagine that it cancels out the issue.

A few friends of mine went to Germany and they said the Germans said, "Only Americans would come up with a name like 'polar vortex of death' to call what the rest of the world calls 'winter.'"
KCoopWorks Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2014  Hobbyist
In Canada, we just call it 'Winter'.  Hehe, I love this.

Elsa would be be heck of a game breaker if she were in a final fantasy game. Limit break: polar vortex

It's an omen! A sign of the end if Frozen doesn't win Best Picture!

Never get drunk....and cast freezing sucks for people...on the east coast...

I blame Elsa for the recent weather, but I can't get behind her ever saying "Fudgesicles!" Oh well... neat drawing.
Blueoriontiger Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I pulled this on my boss when I got snowed in for work last Monday ("Elsa threw a pity party and hence I'm frozen in at my house"); fortunately she got the reference and got a laugh out of it. Thanks for illustrating this. :)
Serena1000 Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2014
Fortunately, I live in Texas, so it was very cold for a few days, but now the temperatures are in the 60's and 70's (Fahrenheit). However, my prayers go out to anyone affected by what the weather stations call "life threatening wind chills." Stay safe.
violetofviolence Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2014
Thanks, now I can blame someone and now my back yard is a swampy frozen mess. 
peirrin Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2014
Yeah, basically, if New York Cancels school, then you know the weather is BAD. 

I live in what people refer to as "The South."  The houses simply aren't built for the cold to get that bad.  Heating systems included.  Mostly they're built for hot humid summers, with cool winters.  When it gets down to 5 F (-15 C), (Which it did this week)  the houses even get cold, and the heat systems (Which are mostly heat pumps)  either stop working very well, or stop working completely. 

Then there is the whole underfunded snow plow divisions, who can't keep up with anything more than the lightest of snow fall/ice.  None of the infrastructure is underground to keep it protected from Icy rain (mass power/heat outages), water pipes are minimally insulated if at all, so they freeze and burst.    And about 95% of southerners don't know how to drive on ice or snow. 

 I'm better, but that's because I learned to drive up in the mountains, I've got a bit more experience, but most of that experience tells me to stay home and start burning the furniture for warmth!  :)
