You just got to love weather lingo – wind chill, Bermuda high, and now Polar Vortex. Maybe it is because I am in the middle of reading Dr. Sleep by Stephen King but I can just picture a horror novel or movie entitled The Polar Vortex, Can’t you just see the movie poster? A whole town running down the street screaming trying to escape the Polar Vortex (yeah, I am remembering the poster for The Blob).
I’m sure the movie would be a hit. And just think of the sequels – The Polar Vortex Returns, of how about Revenge of the Polar Vortex. I mean just think of it. This could be as big as the Harry Potter series, or Twilight, or Hunger Games. It could fuel movies for years to come.
If the big screen wouldn’t embrace it how about the small screen? I am thinking of something like the Rankin-Bass holiday specials.Yes, I am dating myself but I also know that some of you are right there with me. Think Rudolph and Santa Claus is Coming to Town.
Can you imaging the Polar Vortex and the Heat Miser battling for control of the world?. Who would win? Would we bu plunged into a world of sub zero temperatures or would we all be sweltering in highs that are off the chart. Who would save the world from these extremes? Who would be our next super hero.
Okay, maybe I shouldn’t write anything before I’ve had my first cup of coffee.
