The Northeastern U.S. is set to receive up to two feet of snow over the next few days. This could mean early morning shoveling and slushy commutes to work, but if you’re lucky, it could also bring back the ultimate childhood delight…A SNOW DAY!
We like to be optimists here at Walk On Socks, so we’re going to assume you get the latter and are set free from the daily grind of your workplace to do as you please.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of a snow day since childhood, you may be wondering what to do. Will your neighbors judge you for picking a snowball fight with little Timmy next door? (HINT: they absolutely would…plus Timmy really wouldn’t stand a chance).
If you find yourself pacing the house in your PJ’s, we have five great activities for an adult snow day that will have you crossing your fingers for another 12 inches tomorrow.
It the first flakes started falling on grocery day, you may be stuck with a motley crew of leftovers. Luckily, those are the perfect ingredients for a frittata! As long as you have a few eggs, any combination of meat, cheese and vegies is fair game.
Hot cocoa is the obvious go-to, but you may be in the mood for something a bit more adult. Try playing bartender for the day and mix up a few hot cocktails.
A snow day can also make a perfect game day with family or friends. If the classics aren’t your speed, try mixing thing up with a newcomer like the always hilarious Cards Against Humanity.
No one around to play a game with? No problem! Use the alone time to binge watch a new show. Maybe catch up on The Walking Dead before it returns next month.
And finally, if you’re of the mindset that TV rots your brain, maybe kick back (in your Walk On Socks of course!) with a good book. We suggest A Short History of the World – it’s a great refresher on everything you forgot from highschool, covering the big bang to today in under 300 pages.
