Surviving #SLEETSHOW2015: A Sleet Day Parenting Guide

All of the schools are closed. You find yourself stuck at home with your own children.

They want to go outside and run in the sleet, but you have been told by various important weather outlets that #SLEETSHOW2015 is no joke, and that going outside can only mean certain death.

Luckily, we have a plan to help you make it through this Sleet Day horror of horrors. And it's just five easy steps.

Step 1: Hide all items in the household that could be used as weapons.

Face it: Things are great now, but in about six hours, when everyone has used up all the power on their iPads and there's no more toilet paper, it's going to get ugly. You don't need to worry about intruders coming to your home, since everyone is iced in. (Disregard the fact that the mail was just delivered to your doorstep.) So, hide any and all possible weapons.

The only things around your family at this point should be pillows, booze, snacks and more pillows.

Step 2: Collect all emergency preparedness equipment.

Step 5: Sneak away, then hide in your bathroom quietly. For as long as possible.

You can hide from your kids as long as you tell them you're crapping.
