No, not another hogwash. I'm just interested in y'all's definition of blizzard.

"Never seen one. Never been in one," she says happy with her sleeveless shirts. Snow pictures are fascinating though. So black and white! (Bran's too) I don't know why they fascinate. I wonder whether real life is as terrific and terrifying as the picture. Strangely, I don't want to find out.

at least 15" with 20mph winds - you really gotta stop traffic until the plows get out.

...and don't forget the thousands of travelers trying to get home when the planes, buses and trains stop.

No, you don't.
It may be pretty, but try shoveling, you'll have a different
song.

Blizzard; snowstorm of a fine type of snowflake that blinds eyesight and buries everything under mountains of snow in no time.

Ohh...three inches or more, with some wind. There has to be wind; if the flakes just fall straight down it's not a blizzard.
