...or, dare I say, snowclone.

You may or more likely may not recall my nomination for a QOTY, provided by Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy on Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy:  "The last time we saw anything like this was never".

This afternoon in the middle of the attempted cleanup after "Blizzard 2013", as the local channel calls our friend Nemo, Gov. Malloy commented, "The last time we had a snow like this was never."
