Alberta Clipper

Dear Alberta,
Thank you for sending this clipper our way. I am particularly happy about the word 'colossal' that Environment Canada is using to describe this warning:

Another significant snow squall event expected to develop on Thursday. This is a warning that snow squalls are imminent or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions. Listen for updated statements. An Alberta clipper will cross southern Ontario tonight along with a dollop of snow. Several significant snow squalls are likely to affect the Bruce Peninsula to Collingwood later on Thursday as well as downwind locales to their south.

Colossal snowfall totals in excess of 50 centimetres are possible out of this event by the time it weakens on Saturday. (how big is 50 cm?)

Event. That is a key 'get out of dodge' word. Collosal snowfall event. Run for the hills, I tell ya!
