Snow Day Expectations Vs. Reality

As we all know by now, winter storm Stella dropped in today to say “whaddup” and get us the day off work. Ty Stella. Blizzards are literally my fav state of emergency. All you have to do is curl up with your favorite snacks and dating app of choice and wait until it’s safe to get food delivery again. Because calories don’t count when it’s snowing. It has to do with the barometric pressure or something. Idk.

Anyway, snow days are the fucking best, though they usually don’t meet all the expectations that you set for yourself when you first received your “work from home!” email. But like, maybe planning to wake up early, watch three workout tapes, start a crafting project, and make personalized snow-based Snap stories for each of your friends was a little overly ambitious. Next time stick to something more easily achievable next time, like smoking your snow-bae’s entire supply.

High (literally, high) expectations are apart of everyone’s snow day, unless you live in like Antarctica or something where it’s always snowing and snow days are nbd to you now, which is honestly kind of sad. Here are some of the most common snow day expectations vs. reality, to help you manage your disappointment and complete inability to be productive when ice is falling from the sky.
