Have you heard? (Of course you have.) The blizzard is officially on its way, folks.

Here are a few ideas to keep you entertained at home.

What to watch Like it or not, we New Yorkers love nothing more than to one up each other on the latest pop-culture sensation. Use the weather as an excuse to get a head start on House of Cards, David Fincher and Kevin Spacey’s much-buzzed-about new Netflix series.

What to read Devouring a juicy book on a wintery weekend is actual heaven. Our plan is to dive into the latest and appropriately chilly Jo Nesbø mystery, Phantom. (Nesbø newbies might want to start with The Snowman.)

What to eat and drink Once you’ve had one too many deliveries of tom yum soup, brave a grocery-store run (sweatpants and Sorels are totally acceptable) and whip up some lemon-ricotta pancakes à la Sugar and Plumm and a killer Bloody Mary, courtesy of The Vanderbilt in Brooklyn.

What to obsess over Feed your need to be in the know with the neighborhood-specific weather site and iPhone app Wunderground. Then alert all your uptown friends that the flakes are coming their way.
