12 Things to Do When You’re Snowed in

The current view from my window.

My eight year-old self would be appalled to learn that my 21 year-old self has come to fear snow. Once a master igloo creator, I now cringe at the thought of the shoveling, the overly-salted sidewalks, the feeling of having on four shirts at once…

That said, a snowy day brings with it a blessing. There really are few other circumstances that dictate you are free to bunker down and draw as close to hibernation as humanly possible. 

So, here are a few ideas to pleasantly waste time, worry not, and chill out.


Hare & Anser is L.A. Bound!


I have always been infinitely jealous of those select few who always seem to escape the cold weather when it’s at its worst. There’s no feeling quite like sitting on top of your malfunctioning radiator while scrolling through Instagram to see everyone you know cartwheeling across the white sands of Aruba.

Finally…my day has come! I am the chosen one! Well, chosen by my boyfriend to accompany him on a journey back to his homeland of California, but that’s all in the fine print.

Yes ma’am–for the next seven days I will be forgoing the icy and slushy perils of New York City in favor of the everpresent sunshine of Los Angeles. Siri just informed me I can expect temperatures up to 79 degrees! That’s 79 whole degrees more than a girl could hope for!

Anyway, I’m so excited to share this trip with you! I’ll be eating and knitting my way through a veritable paradise and taking thousands of pictures while doing it.
