As you probably figured out from East Coast friends tweeting and Facebooking about how they were about to become Jake Gyllenhaal in The Day After Tomorrow, a winter storm called Stella queefed out a ton of snow all over the Northeast earlier this week. Businesses closed and some people stayed home. Well, the people who were waiting for a train at an Amtrak station in Rhinecliff, NY on Wednesday probably wished that they would’ve stayed home after they got hit by a damn avalanche.
This video, which has been making the rounds, shows people waiting on the platform as an Amtrak train comes toward them. Amtrak said that the train was going its normal speed to clear the snow from the tracks, but it still created a cloud bigger than a Yeti’s fart. Amtrak also said that they always tell people to step away from the platform when a train is coming. If Charlie Sheen and the Lohans were standing on the platform, they could’ve opened up their nostrils and snorted all that snow up, but they weren’t. So the snow hit the people, knocking some down to the ground.
Some of us probably wake up, wishing that we’ll get blasted with a load of white stuff that day, but not like this:
I wouldn’t blame those people if they said, “Fuck this shit,” and immediately went home to go under the covers until April. Hell, they should stay there until May.
