According to The Atlantic’s Caroline Kitchener, this weekend marks the official opening of break-up season: “During their first trip home, freshmen have to decide whether they stick it out with their first love, or succumb to what is known as the ‘Turkey Drop’ — the phenomenon of high-school couples breaking up when they come home for their first Thanksgiving.”

+ The good news for those concerned someone is flying home to break up with them: The weather is so bad, they might not get there anytime soon.

+ Could the weather force Macy’s to run a parade without balloons?
