Weatherman Lingo

One morning early last week, while enjoying my Cheerios, I switched on the television to catch the traffic and weather report before heading off to work. And when Andre' Bernier announced that we could expect some "snizzle" I thought "Wow, the Cleveland news anchors are actually trying out urban slang!" They will do anything for ratings.

I was wrong, of course. "Snizzle" means a snow and drizzle mix according to the Cleveland weather experts.

So, seeing as we get to make up our own words, I've decided that the snowy/mist combo I had to drive through this morning should be known as "snist."

Fo' shizzle my nizzle.
