Accuweather has a headline titled, "Snowstorm to maul Mid-Atlantic." If you click on the link, you'll see a map of the projected storm.
We live in the 'paralyzing' belt, just below the 'disruptive snowfall' belt. I love these terms! They're so creative and descriptive.
Perhaps English teachers would see more inspired work from their students if they had the kids write weather reports?
