Today I woke up, looked at my phone and saw the current temperature. Yeah, -4 degrees. That’s pretty cold. Like, you-only-think-I’m-getting-out-of-this-bed-anytime-soon kind of cold.
This winter has really been a jerk. Just non-stop freezing temperatures. Ridiculous amounts of snow. Heck, even Elsa herself has gone and gotten herself arrested for this weather lunacy.
Yet as bad as I feel, I know it’s loads worse for all my friends out in the Boston area. From what I’ve seen, they’ve got like 900 feet of snow. Cars are completely covered. Schools have been open, what, like two days in the last month? It’s just a dangerous, uncomfortable situation.
So I’m dedicating this post to my blogging buds of the New England area. Folks like Kenda of Remaking June. Nicole of Miss Blondie. Drew of BenSpark.com. Karen of 3 Garnets & 2 Sapphires. Jennifer from MomSpotted. Melissa from The Mommyhood Chronicles. Robin over at Blommi.com. And everyone else out there who braves frostbite every day simply by going outside to get the mail!
This winter will eventually pass but in the meantime, go grab a blanket and a steaming mug of hot cocoa. (Marshmallows mandatory!) Then curl up on the coach, pop on Netflix and watch some of these sure-to-warm-you-up movies.
10 Netflix Movies to Warm You Up This Winter
What’s that you say? A nuclear accident has messed up the Earth’s tectonic plates and now you’ve got earthquakes and volcanoes going kablooey all over Southern Cal? Well at least it’ll be warm, right?
This girl is on fire! Literally! Yep, this second installment of The Hunger GAmes sees young Katniss Everdeen wear a truly smoking hot dress! She also is pretty much unstoppable in The Hunger Games too.
You want warmth? You got warmth. Size definitely matters when it comes to building a fire, and no one generates a bigger blaze than ol’ Godzilla himself! Oh, and it’s just so cool seeming him fight a ginormous moth!
So what if you’re being chased by some crazy evil organization looking to harness your power. At least you’re now a grown woman with some hot pyrokinetic powers.
Nobody. As in nobody. Nobody puts Baby in the corner. How can anyone NOT get up and get their blood flowing when watching this classic Patrick Swayze film about a rather “free spirited” dance instructor at a summer resort? It’s saucy! It’s sexy! It’s steamy!
Fire good! As you sit there shivering with your snow forts surrounding your house, take comfort that you’re not one of these Cro-Magnons looking to just get a basic fire starte
Uh oh! Looks like the Earth’s inner core finally stopped spinning. That just can’t be good. In fact, it’s like the opposite of good. It’s bad. As in “crossing the streams” bad. To set things right again, some kooky scientists want to drill down to the core of the planet and set off a mega nuclear device. All that molten mass and explosions are sure to warm you right up from head to toes!
He said he’ll be back… and he was! The best Terminator movie ever (which sadly isn’t really saying much), Judgement Day is full of so many explosions, it’s guaranteed to warm your soul! Plus, there’s a hot molten scene at the end that’s as touching as it is boiling.
Remember LOST where Oceanic 815 crash landed on a gorgeous (yet crazy mysterious) island? That was nice. Now this movie, well, let’s just say the airplane ends up flying into a real dangerous area that’s chock full of a ring of active volcanoes. Talk about being in hot water!
All the warmth and beauty of a fireplace without the danger! And, uh, without the warmth. At least you can enjoy the jolly Christmas tunes that keep the crackling yule log company.
What movies are keeping you warm?
