October 10, 2019. Just yesterday, the temperatures were in the high 70s here in Littleton and it hardly even felt like fall. Today? It’s a blustery snowscape with icy snow and poor visibility. In other words, it’s a pretty typical fall here in Colorado.

At Summit Riverside Apartments in Littleton, we think that although many find the first big snowstorm of the year something that’s intimidating, in reality, it’s an opportunity to do something a bit out of the ordinary. Whether you’re excited about the arrival of cold weather or it’s something that has you wanting to do winters in a warmer state, in today’s post, we’ll be sharing a few tips on what you can do to make the most of the first snowy day of the season here in Littleton.

A Few Things You Can Do On This Snow Day

Take the Day Off

It’s not something you do often, so why not call in and let your boss know that you won’t be at work today? Although this is easier at some companies than others, there are plenty of reasons that you may not be able to make it into work. Perhaps damp weather causes your knee to start aching and you don’t think you’ll be able to come in. Maybe the snow plow covered the exit from your neighborhood and you’re stuck.

If you’re lucky, you can just let your boss know that you need to take a personal day and leave it at that.

Whatever the case may be, there’s no better way to enjoy a snow day than from the comfort of your home.

Order Some Food

This is a day that’s a bit out of the ordinary, so why not treat it like one? Call in to your favorite restaurant and see if they’re delivering. This being Colorado, there’s a good chance that you can find someone who’s willing to venture out in the snow to bring you food. Whether it’s pizza, Chinese, or a good burger, there’s nothing quite like having someone bring you food when it’s cold outside.

Rent a Movie

If you’re like most people, there’s a backlog of movies that you’d like to watch, but haven’t found the time for. This is the perfect opportunity! Spend some time exploring Netflix or rent something on-demand, but either way, settling into your living space with a good movie after a warm meal is something that you might not generally make it a point today. There’s no time like the present.

Take a Nap

When is the last time you took a nap in the middle of the day? If you’re like most people, it’s probably been awhile. After all, most of your days are spent at work! The great thing about being at home on snow day is that you don’t have any responsibilities. That means that if you want to pause your movie and curl up on the couch — or better yet, get cozy under your blankets back in bed — then there’s no reason not to. This day is all about you, so take the time to care for yourself with a relaxing, restorative nap.
