‘Icepocalypse’ fits the storm that felled big trees in York County, Pa.

York, Pa., Daily Record/Sunday News columnist Mike Argento used the term ‘Icepocalypse’ in a Tweet about this week’s ice storm: ‘Trees down everywhere. No cars on the roads. Power out everywhere.

If the storm can fell a tree of this size, ‘Icepocalypse’ works as a name for that storm.
