J.Greely has some questions... we don't know what they are, but they are no doubt numerous.

I don't know what this post title means...but any sad girls in snow best get inside lest the same fate befall them. 

There is no doubt a tragic story behind this inscrutable clue. 

This picture is unrelated:

1 Sorry if I have to ruin the joke by explaining it. The "Twitter Ruined/Killed Animeblogging" thing is as old as the collapse of the old Singaporean AB.net, THAT, Saturnine, and RIUVA (was it 7 yeas ago now? wow). Meanwhile, Twitter itself was gotten killed a few times, each time stronger than before. GNUsocial was always hanging at the edges, which is where Author now. But it was marginal... Until suddenly, Pixiv stood up a Mastodon instance (called "Pawoo"). Hoo, boy. It was almost as good as Sad Puppies, only in Japanese. The lead picture is clickable and leads to Pawoo, where I link two cases of Anime Alzeimer, one everyone talked about recently, and Makoto of Kanon.

2 5,600 words of inside baseball later, I've learned that the Internet is a slowly-moving parody of itself.

It was entirely my fault. Starved of time, energy and ideas, I decided, in lieu of actual content on my part, to link to people who were producing some.
It was an attempt at a joke (the sad girls thing). 
I realize that mastadons had a more southerly and temperate distribution than their more famous arctic cousins...
...so given the it was a clumsy analogy, but the intent wast was a reference to the old "Sad girls in snow" meme which is pretty much a dead meme...in part because...
...Twitter killed anime blogging. 
Which, in context and in retrospect, is arguably recursive.
