The last week of August is a dead week—nothing happens and no one is here. Every store has a sweater or three available for perusal, prominently displayed as a distraction from the tangled clutch of sundresses, tank tops, and 4th of July-themed shorts that no one wanted to buy. Labor Day is almost here; school may be…
Everything is stupid, and so are we. Welcome to Jezebel’s Stupidest Summer Ever, a season-long celebration of our worst, most idiotic thoughts and opinions.
If you live on the East Coast, buckle up because we’re in for a cold, stormy week ahead (with some snow!) And thankfully the Washington Post has a comprehensive report on the upcoming weather and it is one of the most dramatic weather reports I’ve ever read.
Fresh from a thorough pummeling by Hurricane Irma, yet another violent storm is poised to wreak havoc on the Caribbean. This one’s name is Maria, and she is not fucking around.
The hashtag #Irma has started floating around amidst reports that Hurricane Irma, the season’s second big storm, is gaining strength in the Eastern Atlantic Ocean. It became a Category 3 hurricane on Thursday afternoon, and is expected to become a Category 4. Its path isn’t clear yet, but with thousands of Texans…
Texas tea party Rep. Blake Farenthold (R), who represents an area that is directly in the path of Hurricane Harvey—and was also, unrelatedly, recently called “so unattractive it’s unbelievable” by Sen. Susan Collins, whom he offered to duel—just gave an interview on live television to discuss his district’s…
Women’s rights activist Roxcy Bolton died last Wednesday in her home state of Florida. She was 90 years old.
On Thursday morning, Martha Stewart awoke to the blizzard just like every other person in the New York area. But unlike myself—who put sweatpants over my pajamas and kind of blindly felt my way down Houston to the Whole Foods where, unlike my fridge, the milk is unexpired—Martha had a pleasant morning. She took her…
Hurricane Matthew is already responsible for the deaths of more than 280 people in Haiti, and now, strengthened into a Category 4 storm, it is directing itself at Florida’s coast. President Obama has called a state of emergency in both Florida and South Carolina, and officials are urging everyone to evacuate without…
In an event that appears to be straight out of a climate change powerpoint, southern Louisiana has been hit with unprecedented flooding over the past several days, leading the federal government to declare a state of “major disaster” for several parishes.
If weather advisories give you the unshakeable impression that someone is shrieking at you about pollen counts and flash flood warnings, you’re in good company. And so, to appease the public, the National Weather Service will quiet down — that is, they’ll stop typing in all caps.
Weather experts have predicted that a potentially historic cold snap will make its way across the East Coast and Ohio Valley this weekend, with temperatures plunging to 30 degrees below average. That is a big disappointment, because I was hoping to have some sex on Valentine’s Day and I don’t like being nude if I’m…
It is snowing in New Hampshire. Like, so hard.
Have you ever contemplated how a Tyrannosaurus rex would tackle the task of shoveling snow? I must admit that I haven’t given it much thought, even under the influence. But now that we have this video, the world can behold an industrious—if rather effete—dinosaur, a Sisyphus for the blizzard-bound.
A Wisconsin woman found frozen to death on Sunday morning in Milwaukee has been identified as 21-year-old Elizabeth Luebke. According to reports, Luebke left a house party after having an argument with her friends, venturing outside in shorts and a tank top on a night when temperatures were well below zero.
Sing it with me now: Everyone’s talkin’ ’bout Staaar War/Everyone’s talkin’ ’bout Star Waaar. And a weather reporter in the U.K. used her forecast to incorporate a remarkable (perhaps Emmy-worthy) series of clever Star Wars puns.
It’s currently December 9. And, uh, has anybody seen our snow?
The Weather Channel has released the list of 2015-2016 winter storm names and, while some blizzies are stuck with classic titles like “Hera” and “Olympia,” others are getting a modern twist. Batten the hatches, everyone: winter storm Yolo is on its way.
Watch this video and witness a child acquire a lifelong love of meteorology—or set on a course towards a future as a hype woman. One or the other.
Cold comfort, perhaps, but this should make you feel slightly better: At least you aren't struggling through this winter weather in Gilded Age costume.
