    When I think of a major snow event, I always think about the amount of milk I have in the house. Who needs water, we can live on Milk alone. Milk goes with everything. Plus the extra fat in the milk will sure help when your out there in the cold shoveling.

    Two words "French Toast". There's nothing better then being snow bound and making something you would never make if you weren't stuck in. Plus when I want that PB&J sandwich, I want it...and I want it now.

    A Ruler

    Look you have to measure the snow on your deck, or in the yard so you can post that Facebook or Instagram photo. This will probably be one of the most important things you'll do during the storm so don't screw it up. Make sure your measurement is accurate cause people need to know how much snow you got. This is a necessity.

    A Working Computer, Laptop or Cellphone

    Don't be stuck with a great picture of the snow and not be able to post it so others know it's snowing at your house too. Plus you'll want to be able to see how the snow looks on everyone else's front steps and porches, and there's always that crazy dog or cat in the snow video that you don't want to miss.
