A winter storm warning is in effect fro New York, and the mayor has decided to close schools on Thursday. Expect 5-8 inches of snow, very low visibility and winds of 20-30 miles per hour.
We’d normally say it’s a great day to go sledding, but the nasty conditions mean that everyone should probably stay home. While the kids are playing with play-doh, you should be watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon (not kid-friendly). Tavern on the Green also tells us they’ve got a Snow Day special — kids eat free from the kids’ menu.
Also, to prepare for a possible outage, the city advises people to:
– Charge cell phones
– Gather supplies
– Turn refrigerator/freezers to a colder setting during an outage
– Stay clear of downed power lines
– Turn off all appliances
– Keep refrigerator/freezer doors closed to prevent food spoilage
– Do not use generators indoors
Here are some tips to keep you safe and sound if this winter storm visits. pic.twitter.com/1S4tA2Ylgv
