my little family (daughter Elizabeth, son-in-law Paul, granddaughter
Opal) got back recently from a vacation trip to the east (upstate New
York, NYC, Boston), escaping just ahead of the heavy snow, with
reports of terms used to describe the snow storms: snowtastrophe,
snowmageddon, snowpocalypse.  any others?
