15 funny tweets to help you cope with 'Snowmaggedon'
The 'Beast from the East' is raging, with heavy snow and extreme weather warnings across the country - including a rarely issued red warning in Scotland, meaning 'risk to life'.
While bad weather on this scale should never be taken lightly, it's important to see the funny side now and again.
These tweets about the snow have forced us to crack a smile, even while wearing eight layers and standing waiting for a train that may never arrive.
Zoos and animal sanctuaries around the country were forced to close because of the bad weather, but some of the snow-loving residents still found reasons to be cheerful
Weather notice 28/2/18: The Zoo is currently closed due to heavy snow and ice, with more forecast on the way. We will continue to review the conditions ahead of tomorrow and post an update as soon as we are able. Please take care and check the conditions ahead of travelling. pic.twitter.com/3aSJFWE6v5

But let's be honest, the main thing we're worried about running out of is internet access
“There’s a snow storm coming, school will be closed, we’ll have NO WiFi and you’re not taking it seriously” My teenager is panicking #Snowmageddon

We're getting sick to death of talking about the snow, but it's inescapable
News agenda of the day in brief: snow, snow, more snow, cosy things to do indoors because there is snow, nice things to eat because there is snow, warm things to wear because there is snow. Cats in snow, dogs in snow, I have more snow than you snow, etc #snowoff
