The Snowstorm Survival Kit
With the impending snowstorm, there are plenty of preparations that you're being advised to make. Here's a more fun way to get through the storm.Of course, the most important thing is being safe, avoiding driving in hazardous conditions, all of those things.
But once that's all taken care of, you're faced with the possibility of being stuck inside for a day or two. So what do you do to fight the stir crazy feelings that are creeping in?
1. Nap as much as humanly possible. Usually you have work to do. Errands to run. Adult responsibilities to take care of. But now that there's snow all over the place, you might have some time on your hands. More importantly than that, you have an excuse: how can anyone expect you to go out and do anything with snow on the ground? Catch up on that sleep! You know I've got you when it comes to shirking actual responsibility. And no, I don't know who that lady in the photo is but she looks cozy as heck, am I right?
2. Make pancakes. You might get bummed having to just sit inside all day and stare at the weird hole in the wall that you never feel like fixing and the cause of which you've never been able to identify. So what you need? Fingers crossed, you've got some Bisquick or something in the pantry. Look at that kid. No one can be depressed when there are pancakes involved.
3. Netflix. Listen, as soon as you think you've seen everything to want to see on Netflix, you're mistaken. There's definitely an awesomely-bad 80s action movie or a 47-part NatGeo series on prisons in China that you never realized you needed in your life. This is your chance to fall in love with some British comedy none of your friends have ever heard of, even though you don't like British comedy that much.
4. Beer. Hey, if you don't have work, have some fun! I don't need to extol the virtue of beer to you. Although, if you're not 21 and reading this, uh, grab a Yoo-hoo or something. Yoo-hoo is fun, too.
There you go, good luck and most importantly, stay safe!
