Winter is fast approaching and with winter comes snow—sometimes lots of it. Although it is practically impossible to detect exactly how much snowfall there will be each year, it is more than likely that New York will see a substantial amount of snow days before the spring comes once again.
Some people regard snow as being a means of having fun building snowmen, sledding and having snowball fights. Other people view snow as an inconvenience that makes it difficult to travel or even leave the house!
Although snow can be both a blessing and a curse, it is a reality of life in the Northeastern United States. Thus, those who reside in New York should be prepared to experience snow days and teach their children how to be ready in the event of a blizzard.
Typically, there is a lot of warning before a blizzard hits so people have lots of time to gather food before the storm. Blizzards can occasionally cause power outages so people facing such a storm should be equipped with batteries, flashlights and blankets.
Snow days are usually days that are spent largely indoors so they offer excellent opportunities for family bonding. If power remains on then it’s a good time to watch movies together, play video games or even bake. If the power goes out it’s a prime time to read books, play cards or simply spend time conversing together.
Either way, preparing for a snow day is one way to get ready for the chilliest time of year!
