“Wallpaper Paste Snowstorm”

I just read this on the on-line MSN news this morning, introducing a term I had never heard before.

“By Matthew DeLuca, Staff Writer, NBC News

Washington, D.C. faces its heaviest snowfall in two years as a sloppy winter storm moves in from the Midwest, shutting down federal offices and threatening to dump between four to six inches of snow on the nation’s capital on Wednesday.

“It will be a wet, heavy, gloppy snow consistent with wallpaper paste,” National Weather Service spokesman Chris Vaccaro said.”

Well, if that comes to pass, it certainly will be heavy and gloppy. It’s hard enough having to schlep 50# buckets of the stuff; I feel sorry for the people having to move many more pounds of it with a shovel.
