15 Fun Snow Day Ideas Only Grown-Ups Will Love

It’s all too familiar in winter: you get a day off from either work or school, and yet you are also stuck indoors because of that latest snowstorm, bitterly cold polar vortex or gloomy rain. But it doesn’t need to be an all-day drag when there are many fun activities at hand. You should view it as a fun and exciting day, just with a grown-up twist. A snow day is also an unexpected day off, so give yourself a day and have a little fun!
