You've Got To Be Kidding Me

This from AccuWeather:
The same storm that brought a gentle snowfall across Texas on Tuesday will reach the Northeast in the form of an atmospheric monster with damaging winds, blinding snow, torrential rain, huge waves and flooding.

In the hardest-hit areas, it will seem more like a "snowacane," as a mere blizzard may not adequately describe conditions of this soon-to-be powerful nor'easter.
... a "snowacane"? Geez.

They are saying that wind gusts will reach 70 mph in some areas.
