word of the day: February 09, 2010
snow + apocalypse = snowpocalypse
When weathermen predict large amounts of snowfall in a short period of time.
Clint: Dude, I heard on the weather channel you had a snowpocalypse last night in your area
Paul: Naw, just a couple inches, the weather man is an idiot.
A weather condition in which the amount of fallen snow, while not really such a big deal, wreaks havoc on a city, effectively shutting it down and leaving its citizens stunned and unable to see any sign of hope or a return to normalcy. It's perceived much like the aftermath of a nuclear event, but really... it's just freakin' snow!!
In cases of a Snowpocalypse it is really the panicked reaction of said citizens and NOT the actual snow that makes the situation worthy of the title. People simply aren't used to it, lose their heads and blame the city for the weather.

. It is the end of the world in the form of snow. Involves massive amounts of snow fall in a period of short time. Usually takes place in areas not accustomed to heavy or frequent snowfall.
I'd love to get out of the house, but this Snowpocalypse has me snowed inside my house!
