I should start noting these...

We have a local TeeWee reporter who utters the most wonderful malapropisms any time he departs from a script. This morning, he was out in the 'burbs someplace for "Live Snow Team Coverage" and, looking into the camera very earnestly, he intoned
"I'm here in X County, where the first remnants of snow are just starting to fall..."
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Is the death count still hovering around 0 for this once a century event known to historiand in the future as "Kill-Blizzard 2011!!"

(yes, TWO exclamation points. One is for slackers.)

The production they are putting on for what is estimated to be a 3-5" snowfall is pretty impressive. But how do you top it if it really snows?

I was watching the US "Top Gear" on which Tony Hawk talked aboput some movie or another being his "First forte into stunt driving"

I guess he spends most of his time skating, riding, and recovering from injury, he can't be expected to have a vocabulary, too.

"But how do you top it if it really snows?"

Third exclamation point?

Maybe even a fourth, if it really, REALLY snows!

If he waits around long enough, he may even catch the last remnants of snow.

Clearly, he doesn't have a dizzying intellect.

BUT WAIT!!! Maybe he's thinking ahead? The first flakes that fall will probably be the last ones that melt. Do you understand yet? Kentucky Jones
