When you give the East Coast a snow storm, certain things start happening. People experience one of two emotions, excitement or fear. You would think after all these years that we wouldn't freak out every time we hear the word snow.

Right now, the grocery store shelves are bare and void of bread, water, and canned goods and Home Depot and Lowe's are packed with people trying to get generators. The stores are packed full of frustrated people just trying to prepare for this winter storm. These are the people that experience fear and are scared they are going to be stranded in their homes for a period of time.

The fear also goes along with staying off the roads. The icy conditions make it hard to navigate;however, there are some circumstances that make it difficult to stay off the roads.

People have to go to work and this leads to families being freaked out that their loved ones are braving the cold and ice and could possibly be in danger. While this fear is justified, it leads to the question of whether it is ethical for businesses to risk the lives of their employees just to make money.

On the other end of the scale, you have those experiencing excitement. These are more of the school kids that are happy to have a snow day and not go to school. They are thrilled at the prospect of being able to sled and throw snowballs and make snow angels. For some of these children it is their first time seeing snow and it is a magical moment.

Whatever the emotion you are feeling, remember to stay safe and warm. The extreme temperatures the snow brings can lead to hypothermia and other scary conditions. Take breaks and drink plenty of hot chocolate because when you give the East Coast a snow storm, staying warm and cozy is a must.

Cold Weather Means Binge-Watching Everything

It's that time of the year: hot chocolate, movies, and cuddles!

42

Winter break is basically here and with all the free time, what better way to spend it than binge-watching every single movie and show possible. Here are some suggestions you might love!

1. "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina"

If you were as obsessed with "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" as I was as a child than this show will restart your obsession. It is a darker version of the original, but just as intriguing.

2. "Orange is the New Black"

If you haven't hopped on the "Orange is the New Black" train, isn't too late! The show will keep you on your toes so much that I think I even might have binged watched a little too quick!

3. "Disenchantment"

The perfect show to start of your break. Your brain is dead from finals week and this cartoon is precisely what you need: a little laughter and no thinking.

4. "Set it Up"

This may not be a television show, but the movie is yet another good, funny romance. Two interns struggling to gain time for themselves and their real lives end up wrapped up in their bosses love lives and eventually, their own.

5. "To All the Boys I've loved Before"

Yet another movie, but definitely a must see. When it first came out, ALL of my friends were watching it, so if you haven't seen it yet, I won't spill any details. Just try it out.

6. "The Kissing Booth"

The last movie, I promise, but this one is a little iffy for some. It is the utter definition of a classic romance movie. If all you need is a happy ending and a perfectly predictable movie... well, here you go.

7. "Big Mouth" 

Yet another no-brainer! "Big Mouth" is also a cartoon with laughter and it doesn't require much brain power. If you pay attention to the details, you'll realize it is much wittier and clever than you ever realized.

8. "Stranger Things" 

Three words: dangerous, creepy and thrilling. "Stranger Things" didn't catch my eye until someone forced me to sit down and watch it. If you get hooked, season 2 has even more twists and turns than the first season! Better yet, season 3 should be right around the corner and releasing with the new year so perfect timing for a binge-watching.

9. "13 Reasons Why"

Tragic and emotional is all I have to say. The mysterious, tragic love story for anyone and everyone.

10.  "Black Mirror" 

The random, strange stories told through this show have caught the world's attention, but there are endless episodes, so start from the beginning and work your way through in order. Each episode acts as its own, completely irrelevant to the previous episodes. No need to watch them in order!

11.  "Ozark" 

This one reminds me of "Breaking Bad!" If anyone loved that show, this might be for you. A money laundering father leads his family on a runaway after a deal goes wrong.

12.  "Safe"

A mysterious story with the main character, played by one of my favorites, Michael Hall, aka "Dexter". The story entails a missing daughter, a lost father, and a tragic secret from many years before. Better yet, it includes many other mysteries that I shouldn't tell you about. Do yourself a favor and go find out the answers to them!
