Brace Yourselves for the Snowy Wrath of Winter Storm Athena

It’s November 7, 2012, which means that the End of Days is rapidly approaching. In an effort to streamline communication between now and the inevitable apocalypse, the Weather Channel has decided to begin naming winter storms. Just a week after Hurricane Sandy a.k.a. Frankenstorm a.k.a. Ol’ Dirty Bastard a.k.a. Snor’eastercane hit the East Coast right in the mouth, the folks at the Weather Channel urge you to brace yourselves for the snowy wrath of winter storm Athena.

Realistically, the winter storm headed our way is expected to bring in a mix of rain and snow that might accumulate up to three or four inches in some areas. But, the strong winds—up to 60 mph in some places—expected to hit the East Coast have some experts and politicians urging people to be incredibly cautious and, in some cases, evacuate.

Basically, winter is coming. Prepare accordingly. []
