I love snow more than most people. When it begins to flurry outside I’m the first to run out and frolic in the flakes, often miming Lucy from Charlie Brown about the various flavors of snowflakes depending on the month. This past week we have been bombarded with news and warnings of Winter Storm Jonas, who is expected to hit the East Coast on Friday.

Needless to say, calling one’s parents at 8pm while in a crazy, crowded Safeway is not the most confident of steps into surviving Jonas’ wrath. So in an effort to prove that I am indeed mature and intelligent enough to survive on my own here is a list of precautions and ways to prepare for the onslaught of heinous weather.
