It's snowing like crazy. Our suggestion: Stay home and sip a steamy beverage today and avoid the many dangers of being out in the world.

It's snowing like crazy. And you have a cold. And technically you’re supposed to be at work but you’re feeling like your sinuses are going to explode. What do you do? If you were chef Garrett Lipar of Torino in Ferndale, Michigan a few years back, you might try to muscle through it: “One day, I was really sick and had taken half a NyQuil, but I decided to try to get through service and use the mandolin slicer anyway. I ended up taking off a good chunk off the palm of my hand, going to the hospital and wasting two days of work.” Gross? Yes, definitely. A lesson that you can learn from? Absolutely. Our suggestion: Stay home and sip a steamy beverage today and avoid the many dangers of being out in the world. Here, five hot toddies to save the day:
