What Should People Call This Crazy Snow Storm?


From where we’re sitting, the snow storm that’s currently ravaging the mid-Atlantic doesn’t look like much. But according to the news and the Twitters out of D.C., it’s like The Day After Tomorrow out there. Amid all this chaos though, no one has settled on a name for this storm. The most popular seem to be “snowmageddon,” “snowpocalypse,” and “snogasm.” Those are fine. Good even. But they’re definitely not the most inspired nicknames we’ve come across, a list that includes things like “snOMG,” “chersnowbyl,” and “keysersnoze.” Still, the best we’ve found is one that both captures the magnitude of the storm and honors a legendary New Yorker: “snotoriousBIG.”
