Power up for a Snow Day

In Chicago, we are familiar with the routine of a snow day, especially those of us who were here during the 1967 blizzard.
Walking on top of cars the next day was the only way to have fun.

But now, over 40 years later, you have so many more ways to have fun on a snow day. You and your computer can pass the time and catch up on all the things you feel you never have time for:

1. EMPTY YOUR MAILBOX - Sounds drastic but its a great time of year to backup your old email and purge the Sent and Trash folders. Get through your Inbox and either read the messages, reply, take some action, or copy useful information into your calendar or note files. Shovel that clutter !

2. Organize your files

3. Charge all your electronics

4. Clean up your desk to get ready for tax time.

Then take a nap, make a pot of soup, and enjoy your snow day.
