Dreary Day Movies: Our Picks

Most of the country is on the threshold to an extended period of sour weather. Most areas east of the Rockies are expecting well below normal temperatures, while the South is expecting snow and ice and the East Coast may have another nor’easter on their hands. With that in mind, now is the perfect opportunity to consider the ideal movies to watch this weekend or early next week while stuck at home beside the fireplace and, hopefully, a nice big TV.

Birth of a Nor’easter?

The influx of this cold air could spell an ice storm for the South, from north-central Louisiana eastward through central Georgia and coastal South Carolina. Meanwhile, just to the north of the ice, heavy snow may accumulate from southern Arkansas (midday Sunday) through North Carolina (Tuesday). A noted side benefit of this system: drought relief. The projected path of precipitation will fall precisely where it’s needed most right now.
