n., when a snowstorm begins to loses its cozy, storybook appeal and becomes more of a nuisance; often accompanied by billowy pillows of snow turning into diamond-cutting spears of jagged ice, 15-foot berms of brownish-grey slush and a layer of dried-salt film covering every flat surface
... I also like how people who come from different parts of the country tend to brag about how much snow they have there ('They'll cancel school for two inches here. I'm from XXXXX, so this doesn't faze me at all'). For some reason that irks me, like the ability to handle weather conditions or turn out of a skid is something worth arguing about.
