Anyone who's over 40 and their aches and pains start acting up can certainly tell you.  Mine haven't yet because we're still up at 30.2 inHg

Here in South Jersey it has dropped form 30.17 at 6:00 pm to 30.01 at 11:49 pm.  Not that much but still it is dropping.

I've heard it being called a snow hurricane on talk radio because of the pressure drop.

Of course, I live in the Northwest but I feel bad with what you're all going through.

Weather people are always inventing new terminology for the latest big event. This is basically just a big nor’easter.

I beg to differ. I've heard the term "bombogenesis" before. See also explosive cyclogenesis.

I would say its more the media as bombogenisis has been used before but bomb cyclone, which has been used by some media, isn't a weather term.

That’s entirely a Weather Channel “invention”. The NWS and other weather agencies objected to TWC doing this and refuse to use the names. Unfortunately it gained a lot of traction a few years ago when the former mayor of NYC used one of TWC’s names as a twitter hashtag and that put the winter storm names into mainstream usage.

This whole TWC naming winter "storms" really put me off, especially after the NWS objected. I stopped watching their channel after that BS started (not that I did much watching to begin with, but…)

And from this year also France, Spain and Portugal have set up a joint list. We already have had Ana, Bruno and now Carmen. A different list from that used in the British Isles, but they are working together to write a single list for all five countries next year.
