Snowy Date Survival Guide
A winter storm is approaching the DMV, and it’s supposed to be “historic.” Snowpacalypse isn’t supposed to start until Friday afternoon, but people are already freaking out as usual. While I’ve been loving our unusual winter weather so far, snow would be a nice change. Bigger is better, so the more inches the merrier!
If you plan on getting snowed in there’s a lot to prepare for, especially if you plan on being stuck with that significant someone. You don’t want to risk running out of stuff and annoying each other to death, so make a check list to ensure a sane, even fun snow day with bae.
Here’s a few essentials to plan out to get you started.
The number one key to maintaining snow day sanity is food. While the grocery lines will be terrible, you and your significant other need to suck it up and go together. Pick up favorite snacks and treats. Maybe plan to cook your favorite dinner together to pass the time. And if course, load up on wine and beer. Sober and cold together can blow, but tipsy and together is always an adventure despite the worst of weather.

Being snowed in means tons of free time. From innocent cuddles to freaky business, the cold won’t bother you while it is hot in the bedroom. But remember to step out and live in the snowy moment. Be young again and build a snowman or have a romantic snowball fight that ends in kisses in the ground. Once you come back in you can warm up with hot chocolate and your favorite movie. So get all the things to make this rom-com type night possible.
Since we don’t know exactly how long or serious the snow will get, it’s better to be safe than sorry. While you already have food and activities covered, make sure your significant other packs a ton of clothes. Yes clothes. While being naked together is great depending on what activity you choose to do, you will need a change of clothes for a number of days. So if you don’t want your other half smelling like a wet dog, constantly remind them to bring extra clothes to prevent this problem.
Your snowed-in date weekend will be a success as long as you are prepared. So stay warm and be safe! If you get everything you need ahead of time, there will be no need to leave the front yard.
