    Is it possible to, um, will a snow day to happen? Just in case, can you do us a favor? Can you close your eyes and imagine yourself: It's this time tomorrow and you're still in your pajamas and you're watching Ellen as you work from home? If you dream it, will it come true? Well, we're believers. And, even though we're not necessarily amped on the idea of slush and traffic and frost bite, we'd be lying if we said we didn't get little frosty butterflies just thinking about a Snow Day (capital S, capital D). A Snow Day! On a Friday no less!

    Yes, we're expecting six to eight inches overnight, and a day from our home offices to match. So, in an effort to manifest our cozy long-weekend destiny (yep, we're getting selfish in 2014), we've put together a blizzard cheat sheet. And, because we're not leaving anything to chance Mother Nature (no offense, ma!), we've thought of everything from how to stay warm to how to stay entertained so you don't get cabin fever.

    P.S. Some people are calling this "Winter Storm Hercules" so, you know, if you do end up going into the office tomorrow, it's kind of like you've defeated a classic hero.
