Snowicane or not
The folks at Accuweather have been running this as a headline: "Wicked Snowicane Continues to Make a Mess of Travel, Cut Power".
Then the folks at the Weather Channel run a whole piece on the "extreme hyperbole" being reported. I wonder if that counts for chalkboard material among weather wonks?
Which is all really just a foil to point out that there is another datapoint out there that ex-Pittsburghers run the world. One of the recently appointed top folks at the National Weather service is yet another diasporan. Gotta be a diaspora story in that somehow. Toland? Bueller? Toland? Bueller? Don't make me cover you again as with the roofers?
update: check out AP wire on the semantics of meteorology of late.
