According to a Connecticut official, drivers have been driving safely
during the great Presidents' Day blizzard of 2003, "following the
heedings and warnings".  And another new (to me) word from today's
Times:  the compound _hat hair_, for the "affliction" caused by
compressing one's hair under a tight hat during a winter in which
it's more important to conserve body heat than to look stylish.  (Cf.
also "hood hair.")
