I came across a very unfortunate word today: SNOWACANE. What is a snowacane one might ask? Please, let me enlighten you...

"The same storm that brought a gentle snowfall across Texas on Tuesday will reach the Northeast in the form of an atmospheric monster with damaging winds, blinding snow, torrential rain, huge waves and flooding.

In the hardest-hit areas, it will seem more like a snowacane, as a mere blizzard may not adequately describe conditions of this soon-to-be powerful nor'easter."

WTF! Seriously!? The day after I buy a last minute flight from NYC back to Ohio they decide to announce something so horrible they have to come up with a whole new name for it? They might have well said "Shannon, why would you ever think that it would be ok to buy a last minute ticket in February during the snowiest winter in years. Nice try kido, but next time try not to be so spontaneous. Thanks. Love, SNOWACANE."

Wish me luck! And lets just hope they are over exaggerating a bit...

Oh, and a special shout out to my dear "friend" Bethany for not paying attention to her roomie when he was very loudly explaining this weather event yesterday giving her ample time to warm me of my impulsive purchase ;)
