There are a few steps you must do in order to properly prepare yourself for a winter in New England.
Step 1: Look at the weather.
Step 2: Ignore the weather because there's a 99% chance it'll change within the hour.
Step 3: Complain about the weather.
Step 4: Attempt to move on from the unpredictable weather.
Step 5: Go to Dunkin' and get that iced coffee in 20-degree weather.
Step 6: Continue to say how cold you are.
Step 7: Try to think about something else.
Step 8: Turn on the news to see that they're talking about the storm again.
Step 9: Tell yourself you won't go to the grocery store in this madness.
Step 10: Only get the essentials at the grocery store. (AKA, chips and dip)
Step 11: Get in bed and tell yourself you're never leaving.
Step 12: Pray for a snow day from work/school so you can stay in bed longer and eat your chips.
