The NYU snowstorm survival guide

How to avoid frostbite and make it all the way to finals

New York City has issued a blizzard warning for tomorrow, and although this conjures up images of cows freezing to death in Little House in the Prairie, the following survival guide will not only save your extremities, but entertain you and prevent too much Netflix and Chilling. Who knows how long this storm will last?

Buy all the food from Trader Joe’s

Not soup though. No college student owns a can opener. Buy only microwave mac’n’cheese.


Also alcohol. Buy all the alcohol.


Stay home


Wear onesies to trap your body heat.

PART #4 (optional): For the idiots who voluntarily go outside (aka those of us from sunny states who “just want to see the snow”)

Bundle up. Wear that uber flattering puffy coat, all your hats, scarfs, gloves, snow boots, Jon Snow capes, etc. Layer that shit, especially socks.

Also, be sure to wear bright neon sneakers so you can be spotted after you fall headfirst into the mountains of white snow and die.

And if all else fails, well. Just belt “Let it Go” as the snow flurries carry you away. It’ll help lessen everyone’s grief over losing you.
