A dictionary/glossary/lexicon as sort of a cosmic, meeting of the minds, collaboration of the likes of Dan Webster, Sam Johnson, Ambrose Bierce, Hunter S. Thompson, Wm. F. Buckley, Grouch Marx, W. C. Fields and many more... even though its editors are obscure unknowns with dreadfully dangerous senses of humor.

Derivative work: NASA Hurricane Sandy (10/31/2012) with NASA GOES-13 Project

Blurricane - The extremely unfortunate portmanteau of blizzard and hurricane.  Late last month (October ~ 29th, 2012) the Atlantic spawned a tropical cyclone that became the almost 1000 mile wide storm known as Hurricane Sandy.  Blurricane now seems to be trending on Twitter

Blurricane is the preferred definition in this instance as it blurred the line between cyclone,
hurricane and a blizzard.  Other suggested names
would have been: blizzacane or hizzicane or huzzicane.  All extremely unfortunate.
