New York Times puts 'extreme' in quotes in reference to Buffalo snowfall, Mountain Dew enthusiasts cry foul

snowIn the last twenty years or so, the word ‘extreme’ has been bandied about with reckless abandon. Its overuse is well chronicled in silly product commercials, the X Games and so on. However, this doesn’t mean that there’s no longer a relevant use for the word. Even people who slug back sugary drinks while skateboarding half pipes and simultaneously exhibiting Michael Jordan esque tongue gestures would probably agree that several feet of snow on your front lawn is cause for dropping the quotes. It’s a life threatening amount of snow – it’s not Dr. Evil talking about using lasers to cause global warming…

Hmm – synergy?
