The Hamptons is covered in a blanket of snow, and icy temperatures may be keeping you inside much of the day. Fear not. In an effort to help combat cabin fever, we happily share a smorgasbord of activities to get you through this snow day.

1. Start Thinking About Your Summer Rental—If all this snow has you dreaming of summer in the Hamptons, begin to ask yourself some important questions about what you are looking for in a seasonal rental. Andrew Lieb Esq. has the advice you need.

2. Open a Bottle of Long Island Wine, Or Beer—If you’ve been waiting for a special occasion to open that bottle of merlot, or cork-and-cage bottle of local craft beer, this is it!

3. Browse Restaurant Reviews—Get a heads up on all those East End restaurants you haven’t tried yet. Check out the danspapers.com restaurant review archives.

4. Share Your Great Snow Photos—Don’t keep those great pics of your snowman, dogs playing in the snow, etc. all to yourself. Share your photos on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #danspapers or email [email protected] so we can post them for all your East End neighbors to see.

5. Read Nonfiction Essays—Browse and read short nonfiction stories submitted to the Dan’s Literary Prize for Nonfiction. Find the story index here.

6. Make a Snowman—Send your snowmen photos to [email protected] so we can share them with the world at danspapers.com. You can also tweet to @danspapers or tag us on Instagram @danspapers.

7. Stream Classic Sports Innerview Episodes—Ann Liguori, the host of Sports Innerview on East End public radio station WPPB, has announced that a number of classic episodes of her television program of the same name are now available to watch on the video streaming website Hulu. To stream Sports Innerview, go to hulu.com/sports-innerview-with-ann-liguori

8. Cook, Cook, Cook—It’s a perfect day for comfort food, something hot and satisfying. May we recommend roasting a chicken, perhaps, or a recipe from our Simple Art of Cooking column.

9. Book a Nancy Atlas Fireside Session—The East End rocker’s last show at Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor before taking a break in February is this Friday, January 30, with special guest Bill Sims Jr., the blues guitarist and vocalist. Purchase tickets at baystreet.org before they sell out.

10. Learn How to Drive—Or, at the very least, how to drive in the snow. Remember, four-wheel drive does not equate to invincibility.
