Like the drunk girl stumbling around at the end of a party who just needs to go home, Mother Nature seriously needs to take off her party dress and pass out. Facebook is littered with photos of the overnight snowfall in Lexington, which dusted the grounds at the Kentucky Horse Park with just one week to go before the start of Rolex.

The good news is the 10-day forecast for Rolex looks beautiful, with sun and temperatures in the mid-70s. But was this interim cold snap really necessary, Mother Nature? Was it? The cold front is expected to bring record cold temperatures and a hard freeze to much of the eastern U.S. — from Michigan to New York and Vermont to the Deep South — through Wednesday.

And those of you in the northeast can expect up to six inches of snow in the next 48 hours. It’s just cruel to do that after much of the East Coast saw beautiful spring weather over the weekend. It even passed 80 degrees for multiple days here in Pennsylvania. Go home, Mother Nature. You’re drunk.
