For the sober Sandy

It’s hard to imagine GW students without their iPhones and Macs always at the ready.

But if Hurricane Sandy leaves you Twitter-less, Netflix-free and shuttered indoors, The Hatchet has compiled a guide so you can weather the storm, maintain your sanity and have a little fun as you watch from your window.

1. Channel your inner child and create a massive dorm fort. Gather blankets, sheets and beach towels – perhaps your yellow one from Colonial Inauguration – and transform your space into a comfy shelter.

2. Challenge your roommates to a board game tournament. Before you know it, four hours will pass, one of you will win bragging rights and someone will inevitably have an emotional outburst over going bankrupt in Monopoly.

3. Whip out that old Game Boy, Nintendo DS and any other handheld gaming devices you’ve been too ashamed to play in public since middle school. No judgments this time around.

4. If the power – and lights – go out, do what all college students wish they had more time for: Sleep.
