Entertained During A Hurricane?

Make sure you’re prepared for the worst a hurricane can bring! Contact us today and we can talk about the best way to keep you and your loved ones safe.

You’ve been scrambling for days to prepare your home and family for the hurricane. After reviewing your hurricane checklist for the millionth time, you’re ready to ride out the storm! Your final step, locking your hurricane windows and doors, is complete, and you realize you have days of imprisonment ahead of you. To keep the boredom at bay, follow our suggestions for 20 indoor activities.

Read a book

Everyone could stand to read a little more (when was the last time you read anything besides online lists?). What better time to crack open a new story?

Watch a Movie or TV Show

Hopefully, your power lasts for a while… so you can get a few movies out of the way or maybe find a new series on Netflix or Hulu to start binging. You might get lucky and not lose power the entire time! If that’s the case, get ready to binge!

Play a Board Game

A little family competition will add some drama and excitement to your seemingly unending boredom. Try and find a game that will last a while, like Monopoly or Risk!

Clean and Organize

This one is a little less fun, but you have no reason to avoid chores. You’re locked in your house for goodness sake! You might as well make your time off as productive as possible.


No excuse to miss leg day! You might not have all the luxuries of the gym at home, but there’s still a lot you can do on your own.

Spa Day

Paint your nails, do a face mask, take a bubble bath, and break out the foam roller and relax! It’s hard to make time for some well-deserved self-care, but when you’ve got nothing else to do because of the hurricane… well, anything

FaceTime or Call a Friend!

Getting REALLY bored? Try calling a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while! Speaking of phone calls, have you thought about keeping your old landline phone? They can be crucial during a hurricane, especially a bad one, and can really come in clutch when all else fails!

Take a Nap

No better way to pass the time than sleeping. Invest in a few comfortable pillows and blankets and make a pillow fort with your kids! You can use it an excuse to take a nap when it’s done.

Online Shop

Treat yourself! You totally deserve those new shoes after this emotional roller coaster. I’m sure your Amazon wish list has been getting a bit long lately, we know ours has!

Look Through the Photos on Your Phone

Considering cleaning out your selfies. You’re not Kim Kardashian. Who’s not tired of having to constantly delete ten pictures just to take one more photo anyways?!

Have a Drink

Tea, water, wine… Whatever you’re feeling! We don’t judge.

Learn a New Language

We hope this storm isn’t that long…  Before the storm hits and you run the chance of losing phone service, download Duolingo and have some fun while learning a few new phrases!
