word of the day

With the yearly dire prognostications in effect that we're all going to perish beneath fifty feet of snow and glaciers six miles long, Natasha has coined a phrase for drivers who won't get behind the wheel of the car: snow chickens. This is an overdue phrase in Nova Bastille, where people won't get behind the wheel if a single drop of rain falls from the sky.
 
Your assistance is appreciated in getting this term into the dictionary.

I love "snow chickens". My favortie phenomenon about that area is how people swarm into gas stations and supermarkets when they hear tell of the slightest chance of snow or rain...it's really amusing. The end of the world is coming, make sure we have enough cheetos.
