Kelsey Pommer, Sr. Coordinator, Digital Media Marketing, Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™

Winter storm Pax has bombarded the East Coast with a foot or more of snow and ice. While technology plays an integral part our lives every day, we rely on it even more during extreme weather like winter storm Pax. Here are ten tech companies, which also happen to be CEA members, that can help get you through this snow day.

While you are stuck home away from you friends, send pictures of your snow day via Snapchat to stay in touch.  

Getting cabin fever? Try retail therapy by shopping online with retailers like Fry’s Electronics, Amazon, Target and RadioShack.

For many, public transportation is limited and the roads are a mess, so use Yelp to figure out what restaurants in your area you can walk to for a snow day lunch.

I hope you got snacks because snow days are the best time to be a gamer. Turn on your Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony Playstation 4 or Nintendo WiiU.

And of course, a snow day is the perfect day to catch up on all your favorite shows and movies on Netflix.
