Not-quite new word: snowpocalypse

I've been seeing this on all the sports blogs this weekend, but a little
googling suggests that "snowpocalypse" was around referring to storms in
the Pacific NW this time last year, and perhaps a bit earlier than that.
  That said, maybe it's because I've had to shovel out from this
particular snowpocalypse, but the word seems to have acquired legs now.
