What's in your blizzard survival kit?

We're expected to get 12" or so by the time the storm ends, which isn't a ton in the grand scheme (hello, 3 feet in Boston!) but I still made sure to load up on supplies.

My must-have item(s) are baking ingredients, since baking doubles as a fun activity as well as a tasty treat in the end. I actually grabbed a whoopie pie kit this time, just for something different (and easy). :)

What do you stock up on?

I don't stock up on anything. I live in a snow state. We just get out our shovels and snow blowers and move on with our lives.

We have plenty of food and snacks. We can make some cookies, play with play doh, make something out of construction paper, watch cartoons, color, and listen to music. I think that should get us through this storm. As for me, I have my wine lol ;)

Since we often lose power if there are large snows, we get items that can be easy to cook on a camp stove.
