Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

Over the weekend, winter storm Khan attacked from the Midwest to the Eastern Seaboard, bringing with it icy temperatures native to the Ninth Circle of Hell.


But this Khan, unlike the one from Star Trek, struck from the heart of Canada, not the heart of Pandemonium, and has failed to be quite so fatal.

In the words of the other Khan, Khan Noonien Singh: “I’ve done far worse than kill you. I’ve [iced] you. And I wish to go on [icing] you. I shall leave you as you left me, as you left her. Marooned for all eternity [or at least the next couple days], in the center of a dead planet … buried alive. Buried alive. [Here’s your snowblower.]”

There can be only one response. This, the greatest of all Star Trek reaction GIFs.
