Wednesday/ winter storm Nemo

‘Winter Storm Nemo is now poised to become the latest example of a powerful, potentially historic, February storm’, says the Weather Channel.   I am located north of Pittsburgh, just outside the storm area but it’s going to come down heavily north and east of here.   The word ‘storm’ when snow is involved, is often the equivalent of Roberta Flack’s song ‘killing me softly with his song’ : soft fluffy white stuff that just keeps coming down, and eventually snarling up traffic, snapping tree limbs, damaging power lines, and all that.   And when I was working at a utility company in California, I learned that there was something called a ‘heat storm’ :  a term for an extended heat wave also has potential for widespread power outages due to increased use of air-conditioning.
