Over Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, the east coast of the United States was hit was a large snow storm. Being on the east coast, specifically the midwest region in Ohio, I definitely got hit with that snow storm. The Friday before, my mom even went to the grocery store to make sure that we were set for the storm itself because we knew that we probably were not going to leave the premise of the house.
In preparations for what could be coming in the future of another potential snow storm, here are a few things that you should make sure that you have in your home to be prepared for a snow storm.
1. Warm clothes
You never know if your heater breaks suddenly.
2. Portable charger
In case the power suddenly goes out.
3. A book
Or two, or seven, I have a lot of books that I got from Christmas.
4. A few board games
Again, for if that power goes out and nothing is really working in a sense.
Because again, if your power goes out and you can't watch television, got to have some movies or tv shows on DVD at hand.
6. A surplus of food
My mom went shopping the day before the storm was supposed to hit and throughout the weekend, we just cooked our meals.
If you have food from a few days before and they are still are fresh, plus you don't want to cook, then leftovers are for you.
8. Fuzzy socks
Because who wants cold feet? Plus, it's fuzzy socks!
9. A fully charged laptop
In case you need to do some work or you just want to watch YouTube.
10. A warm coat
Because what if you are the one who is being tasked to shovel the driveway after the storm is done.
Whether it be from your Spotify account or you can play pop music on an instrument that you play (I can play the first part of Epiphany on flute...).
12. If you're of age, alcohol
Because you're going to probably need a wine night or two.
Whether you like each other by the end or not, it is best to sit through a snowstorm with your family if you are related by blood or it's your friends that you call family.
