One of my favorites is when we had an ice storm down here in Austin, and the presence of icy weather so astounded the local student paper that their headline was "Icepocalypse Now."

Unfortunately, it looks like the accompanying online version of the article died off in the most recent redesign of their website, and the Wayback machine only goes so far:


Nothing marks you as a Northern California newbie more than using "the" before a freeway number. It's hard to explain and I'm not sure I buy that explanation. Old timers here still refer to the Nimitz, right?
An ex pat New Yorker neighbor once mentioned that she was heading upstate to Napa, and I told her that no one says that here.

Love this video! Sepulveda??

@Risa: On one of my first visits to New York I made the fatal error of referring to "northern Manhattan."
