Am watching the weather and hoping it's going to happen again.

In pedants' corner?

I can't find chat. This new site is hard going. Besides I thought it was funny. I thought of putting it in recipes so you all thought I was talking about meringues.

I suspect a lot of meteorologists are also pedants. Symbols on maps and the placing of apostrophes, don't you think they occupy a similar corner of the brain?

No sno here. Just slush. Yuk.

Snowy day in pedants' corner, surely!

A snowy day is just an ordinary day with snow, like a rainy day or a sunny day. Surely what they OP is hoping for is a snow day, which is an Americanism for a day when it's too snowy to go to school or work. You could get all pedantic about the OP using an Americanism if you want.

Pah! "the" not "they". I really should read through before posting on this topic.

I wouldn't get pedantic about it - I've just never heard of it!
