How to stay occupied while you’re snowed in
Despite the calendar clearly reading “April”, Mother Nature has once again decided to grace us with an extra helping of snow and ice – how nice of her! If you’re in the Chicago area and are suffering from an abundance of snow keeping you from going out into the world, you’re not alone! Luckily, there are plenty of ways to stave off the waves of boredom while you’re snowed in. Here are a few ways you can keep yourself and your family occupied until the snow lets up in Chicago.
Remember that one show that your friend told you was really good, but you just haven’t had the chance to watch? Well, now’s the time to do it! A snowstorm is a great chance to cozy up on the couch and check out the shows on your Netflix list, catch up on your Hulu queue, or just marathon an old favorite.
Plan a Vacation
Set your sights on something a little sunnier than overcast Chicago and plan out a vacation! Just thinking about escaping the snowy state of Chicago can be enough to reduce the effects of cabin fever, as well as give you something to look forward to in the coming months!
Learn a New Skill
When you’re stuck inside, you have plenty of time to try out a new skill or master a skill you already have. Whether you’d like to learn to knit or crochet, practice calligraphy, learn some advanced cooking skills (or teach the kids some basic ones), or hone your photoshop skills, quiet snow days is a great time to start.
Projects Around the House
Life gets busy. And when that happens it’s easy for home repairs or updates to get put on the backburner. With an extra day around the house, snow days are a great time to get started (or finish) your projects around the house. Whether you’ve been meaning to replace a leaky faucet, paint your living room, or reorganize your closet, now’s a great time to tackle these projects.
With the unpredictable weather that we experience on what seems like a regular basis here in Chicagoland, it’s good to have a vehicle you can always count on. Here at Loeber Motors, we provide car shoppers with a wide range of Mercedes-Benz vehicles equipped with the powerful 4MATIC All-Wheel, which gives you superior traction on the road, even when it’s covered in ice and snow.
