New Acronym Policy Announced

GSD has decided that it is fully committed to acronyms. Why? The reasons are simple:

1) They make typing easier.

2) They're cool. If you write with acronyms, you really sound like you know what you're talking about. If you can understand the acronyms when you read them, you are hip and cool because it says about you that you are in the know, down with the program, and a member of a select club. Remember, there really are only two kinds of people--those who follow GSD and those who wish they followed GSD. And we know who you are.

Don't worry--GSD will not be breaking out IDKs, FYIs, WTFs and acronyms of that ilk--we're above such texting nonsense. Instead, we will have our own special snow language that only our loyal followers will understand. Or, if you're new to the GSD fanbase and/or need a refresher, all you have to do is look to the box that will be permanently displayed on the right.

Herewith, a sample of text from the sleek new streamlined prose of GSD:

"GSD is pleased to announce that an AC will pass through here on Saturday night. It's not the MSE that we'd like to see--(it's highly doubtful the NWS will be calling for a WSW)--but it will coat the ground and make for slick travels."


"Greylock Snow Day is pleased to announce that an Alberta Clipper will through here on Saturday night. It's not the Major Snow Event that we'd like to see--(it's highly doubtful the National Weather Service will be calling for a Winter Storm Watch)--but it will..."

You get the idea. We promise not to go overboard. Should we start to sound like two tech-nerds at CES 2010 (that's Consumer Electronics Show), drop us a comment.


  1. Nice, but OMG..
    a WCC! I'm sincerely shocked.
    (At least I got to use a couple acronyms.)

    Thanks for heads up, Anonymous, on the WCC. Please note that the egregious error has been fixed.
