I've seen a few big snow storms before in my nearly 54 years, but the one 22-23Jan2016 this weekend was the biggest single snowfall I've ever seen.  I got somewhere between 31 and 32 inches of snow in a single storm.

In 2010 we had back to back storms that ended up giving us several inches more snow than this weekend, but it was two separate storms.  That event in 2010 has been referred to in the area universally as 'snowmageddon'.  I still wonder who coined that term?

So what should we call this weekend's storm?

Tyranoblizzard?
Gigantowhiteout?
Snowpocolypse?

Any other ideas?

How about DOOM-STORM '16? By the way......doing fine up here in Canada! *smirk* I'll send you a shovel.

In all seriousness though, that is a fookin' pile of snow! Most I've ever seen was 36 inches in 24 hours Dec. 26-27, 1996 in Victoria, British Columbia, a place not known for much snow at all, but when they DO get it, it's usually a doozie!

This is where I saw snowpocolypse after thinking of it myself.  However and unsurprisingly, a little research (as in a google search) of snowpocolypse has shown maybe others have coined this too....LOL.
