What Did You Think Was Gonna Happen?: Train Covers Waiting Passengers With Wave Of Snow

March 16, 2017

In you should have seen that coming news, this is a slow-motion video of an Amtrak train completely blanketing waiting passengers with a wave of snow in the aftermath of Winter Storm Stella. Several people move out of the way, but most just stood there obliviously filming with their smartphones, waiting to get pummeled. I assume they thought the train would be traveling much slower when it pulled into the station. Or maybe they just wanted a faceful of snow. That must have felt refreshing, like taking a cold shower in the morning to wake up. "Or because you didn't pay your electric bill and don't have any hot water." I can hear my roommate wailing in there right now.

Keep going for the video, it's even better than the screencap makes it look.

Thanks to Gregory P, who agrees there's a lesson here about not standing too close to the tracks. I never do, I'm always afraid some crazy person is going to come push me from behind.

    I noticed the snow stuck to the iron above their heads. I would have mathed that and been nowhere near it.

  • That is a staggering display of obliviousness. Like, Michael Scott from The Office-level obliviousness. 😂😂

    None of them were oblivious to the coming snow smash. If you notice, they were all stupidly standing there pointing their phones at the train, filming what was about to come.

    And it's thanks to the stupidity of them and so many other dumb pioneers around the world that we have fantastic videos like this. God rest their souls...
