A 6-Step Survival Guide For The #Blizzard2016 Snowpocalypse

Read more

Starting tonight, winter snowstorm Jonas is set to arrive and make East Coasters lives miserable. If it’s as bad as they are predicting, there could be up to a foot of snow, 50 mph wind gusts and Hurricane Irene-level coastal flooding, or as the New York Post called it:

But snowstorms aren’t all bad: they provide an opportunity to avoid human contact in a socially acceptable fashion.

Here are some recommendations for how to survive this year’s snowmageddon. Unless we all lose power & internet in which case life is cancelled, and there is no way we can help you.



Block All Your West Coast/Caribbean Friends on Social Media

We all have these friends:

As much as we may love them, our fragile psyches can’t handle this right now. I DON’T WANT TO SEE THIS. It’s 68 degrees in some parts of the country, and if you’re not miserable too, then I don’t want to see it. Block everyone necessary until weather conditions have improved.


Hit Up Your Dealer ASAP

You’re probably going to be stuck inside for a while, so if your stash is low this is not the time to procrastinate. The later in the day it gets, the less likely your special delivery is going to come through. Send. texts. now.

Side note: the day weed dealers decide to implement Uber’s surge pricing model we’re all in trouble.


Actually Buy Groceries

The mayors and governors of the East Coast are advising people to stay indoors, so even if you get by on Seamless to live, you shouldn’t count on that this weekend. De Blasio insists that all drivers are off the roads by 8 a.m. on Saturday. And anyway, if you’re the kind of person who feels no guilt ordering delivery when it’s an arctic tundra outside then you’re probably a demon.

Take your ass to the grocery store, buy your weight in hot cheetos & takis, and you should be fine.
