Snow panic is back, and it is spectacular

Leave this to the pro...the amateurs, I mean
The Washington City Paper has unveiled a "Snow Panic Index" , which they are using to track the upcoming...what do we call it...The Snow Awakens? I guess I should have registered the domain and the trademark. Unfortunately, they fall into the trap of peggin...
