A little white, out
The weatherman was threatening a "white-out" on the five o'clock local news last night.
Now I've been in a real white-out, many, many times, in places where they actually occur, such as the Cairngorm Plateau, or on the top of the Ben (Nevis).
So let me tell, you, this photo from our front door may show a lot of snow, but as long as I can still see the mailbox twenty feet away, it is not an official white-out.
It's a kind of a gray-out maybe.
Let's just call it a decent snowstorm and be done.
