With Hurricane Sandy shuttering schools, businesses, and transit services up and down the East Coast, tens of millions of Americans have been left to wait out the storm indoors. Here are some ways you and your family can occupy your time until the weather passes:

  • Refer to FEMA’s Official Indoor Fun Guide for emergency game ideas
  • Sit on your legs until they both fall asleep, and then try to get up and walk to another room; repeat this 400 times
  • See how much loud clapping you can accomplish before man in next emergency cot gets angry
  • Remember favorite memories
  • Start planning your hurricane story now so you’ll be able to one-up your friends’ stories
  • Tweet something cute or clever about storm. In event of power or Internet loss, just shout 140-character comments out window
  • In moment of storm-induced panic, kiss roommate; never discuss
  • Take a shit right in the middle of Times Square; it’s your only chance
