A blizzard watch has officially been issued for New York

If you doubted the weather predictions that suggest this weekend’s storm will leave the city with a foot of snow, start stocking up on beer, toilet paper and frozen pizza. The national weather service has issued a blizzard warning from Saturday morning through Sunday afternoon. 

Come Saturday, expect the New York City area to get hit with Pablo Escobar–levels of snow, which could reach 8–10 inches, or maybe more, depending on how feisty Mr. Jonas is feeling. Winds will clock in at 25–35 mph, with gusts that could reach 50 mph (hang onto your hat, gurl).

Likely whiteout conditions Saturday night mean you really don’t want to be on the road. Honestly, you probably won't even want to be on the street. But holed up in your apartment with a hot toddy and some Netflix? Now we’re talking. (And if you order Seamless, remember tip your delivery guy big.) Your fave grocery store is sure to be a zoo tomorrow, so remember: Early bird gets the Hot Pockets.
