Let's face it, I thought I was prepared but I wasn't. I was Over two hours late to work because I could not for the life of me get snow off my car. Why you may ask? A spatula is no match for an SUV covered in snow. I kept wishing I would have ordered these four things off of Amazon before the snow hit the SBC!

1. Snow Brush or Ice Scraper. A spatula just doesn't cut it. It took me much longer than I anticipated my hands kept freezing to the point I was convinced frostbite would set in, which leads me to my next item on my list.

2. Gloves. Even garden gloves would have helped. The reason it took me so long to get all of the snow off was my hands would freeze to the point of hurting.

3. Essential Groceries. Yeah Everyone runs to the store to get milk and bread, but there was a soup I was dreaming about and I was convinced I would finally be able to make it. Guess who didn't stock her fridge with the basics? Make an actual list, it'll keep you from eating all your canned items since the nearest fast food chain is closed until the snow melts.

4. Thermals. Long johns whatever you call them. Most of us had to find a way to get to work. It was cold and brutal, the snow got my jeans wet, thankfully my long johns kept me warm. Yeah you may only get to wear them once a year, but you'll appreciate them when you really need them!
