Blustery

Yes. I suggest a word as DotD – only because on my way in to work this morning listening to 780AM, and all the other channels scanning to find better traffic info, EVERY reporter used that word to describe the weather. Every single one. It’s like they formed a cabal to monopolize that word. Or, is it because we don’t have as many “blustery” days as, say, Niagra Falls, everyone feels they have to jump up and grab it because you never know when the next one is coming…

In all the words of the English language to describe a “very windy day” – everyone uses the same one. Douches. All of you. And the word. Douche. For being so ugly, and so “in vogue” that every one has to use it first chance they get.

A lot of times, we here at DotD just complain. I’m going one step further, and any news reporter who reads this, I’m saving them a trip to the Thesaurus. Try one of these next time:

gusty
windy
squally
wild
tempestuous
turbulent
howling
roaring
fistingly
