The helpful resources and updates are important, of course, but the reality is that staying inside waiting for a storm to pass can be boring — and scary, especially if that’s the only thing on your mind.

Allow us to share a few ways to get your mind off the storm while staying safe indoors:

  • Have your power banks charged up + ready to scroll? Check out our list of local Instagram accounts and find a new favorite to follow (say that three times fast 😅).
  • Take a moment to breathe and get active. Try a virtual yoga class with St. Petersburg Yoga, where you can rent a video for 48 hours or book a virtual 1-on-1 class.
  • Get reading. Now’s the time to work on that TBR pile. If you’re looking for something new, try a book written by a local author.
  • Test your local knowledge while passing the time with this Tampa Bay area crossword puzzle.
