Allie’s Recipe for a Snow Day

Snow – You will probably need to borrow from Mother Nature.

Play in the Snow! – If you are a child, put on your gear and go sledding, make snowpeople, have a snowball fight.

‘Max was given a wintry treat of a snowman—complete with meat for eyes and buttons, as well as bones for feet. Frosty didn’t stand a chance against Max, who eventually pounced, knocking it to pieces.’ Calvin and Hobbes would approve! Click for source.

If you are an adult, you most likely no longer own a sled or even a greased cookie sheet big enough to hold you. And you’d have to drive to the nearest big hill, thus defeating the point of it being too snowy to safely drive to work today. I advise standing outside like a lunatic trying to lick the snowflakes, and making snow angels in your increasingly soppy pajamas.

It's hard to tell, but the flakes coming down are huge and fluffy.

Hot Meal and/or Beverage – After playing in the snow, you must replenish your energy. Soup is traditional, but if you’re not that hungry hot chocolate is best. Again, if you’re an adult and calorie counting a cuppa tea is probably your best bet. This is voided when you have a roommate who works at Williams-Sonoma and comes home with a bag of cocoa mix sized to fit Thor, God of Thunder.

Entertainment – If you’re part of a family, now you have the excuse to break out the holiday themed movies even though it’s March: Home Alone, The Santa Clause, Love Actually (which Actually is not for the kiddies, that would be if your family consists of you, your sweetie, and optional pet). For the more classically inclined adults though, this is the perfect time to curl up with a good book.
