another point. Blizzard should change the name of 'an early frost' to something that was NOT the name of a TV movie in 1985 when the AIDS epidemic was starting. For people as old as me - it's creepy.

It's more widely known as a weather-related agricultural term (as in something that damages crops), so no.

I don't know why this was down voted. I was being serious, not trollish. Google 'an early frost' - you'll see what I mean.

That's true, Matthew, but when someone uses the term Independence Day most people don't automatically think of the Will Smith movie, because the term was around for other things first.

You were downvoted because you said something silly. Google notwithstanding, most people associate the term "Early Frost" with the weather phenomenon, and that's clearly what Blizzard had in mind, seeing as the term has been around far longer than one TV movie from the early 80s. I say that as someone old enough to have seen the film on TV during its original airing. Hell, that term is what the movie was referencing in the first place.http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/OlderThanTheyThink

Bear in mind that you're not supposed to downvote something because you disagree with it. His information was factual, and he stated an opinion based on it. No downvote needed.
