New Terms

We didn't have yesterday.

DMV.  Which, in this case, now also stands for "DC Metro Vicinity"?  No, prolly: DC Maryland and Virginia.  As well as all the tried and true traditional means for that acronym (tho we call our state's DMV the MVA.  Motor Vehicle Administration).

Whichever.  It used to be, for decades: DC Metropolitan Area.  What was wrong with that?  Metro area for short.  You know when it was last referred to as the DC Metropolitan Area?  YESTERDAY. 

Why change it?  To include Baltimore?  Naw.   That city knows its place.

Also, Bomb Cyclone.  They make up new weather phenomena that I guess just didn't exist 30 years ago.  Silly

"Bomb Cyclone" = Weather Channel clickbait

"Coming up next, a category F-4-omni tornado out in Oklahoma that also displayed a Triple Lindy over/under. We named it Frank, but the East German judge only gave it 4.4 style points. Now and ad for Purell hand sanitizer...."
