Old prank snow story sends chill

TOLEDO (13abc Action News) - Just… No.

If you share an article about snow, make it this one, which is fact.

A two-year-old article about Earth-shattering snow is making the rounds on your Facebook feed. It’s more proof that not everything you read online is true. In this case, it’s a purposefully satirical article from a site similar to “The Onion.”

Look at the very beginning of the story – the publish date is September 6, 2014. That’s more than two years ago. It claims winter will start months early, by late September. That didn’t happen.

The story also jokes that “by the end of March, they will be seasoned survivalists,” after the satirical blizzards come through. Again, that didn’t happen.

Now back to your regularly scheduled weather forecast.
