    Newsreader's terminology

    Ice was falling off the cables of a suspension bridge at the west coast of Canada and broke a few windshields. The newsreader referred to it as frozen water. I sometimes wonder how far the writer's went in school.

    Maybe the people on your west coast are the same as ours...

    That would be the port Mann bridge which just opened the beginning of this month. Port Mann ‘ice bomb’ damage to be covered by bridge firm; tolls waived | canada.com
    Needless to say the people of Vancouver and surrounding areas are not impressed.

    Samstead, my reference was to the term frozen water. Last I knew it was called ice.

    Why use one word when you can use two? In fact, why use two when you can use 15?

    "white hexagonal crystal form of di-hydrogen monoxide molecules naturally cooled to a solid state"

    That would almost save having to find another news story to report on!

    I like the 15 word way. Makes it sound mysterious and menacing.
