    I remember when I was in Wisconsin, and the snow would pile up on the sides of the roads from snow plowing it. It would get higher and higher as winter went on. And the cars would drive by it and turn it all black. Not the most appealing landscape.

    When I lived in New York City, snow would accumulate dog poop and pee and line the sidewalk with it.

    I hate that stuff. We see it in Canadian cities every spring. Slud sounds like a good name.

    Currently, there’s a Canadian radio show that has an invented word contest based on a definition. In the 80’s, it was part of Rich Hall’s skit called Sniglets in Not Necessarily the News on HBO, later as books.

    Apparently slud is already a word.

    Snirt is an informal term for snow covered with dirt, especially where strong winds pick up topsoil from uncovered farm fields and blow it into nearby snowy areas.

    Snoot. South Idaho snow in the 1950’s would get blackened with coal soot … Then my nose would get stuffy …

    The closest Inuit word that matches is “kipip”, for “annoying snow”. I don’t think “blosh’k” is appropriate for New Jersey (“snow that has been stained with polar bear love sauce”).

    Interestingly, in this forum, you can say “slud,” but not “s_lut.” “Tid,” but not “t_it.” So, “d” is okay, but not “t?” Why would that be? Letter discrimination? (o )( o)

    Unfortunately, CROW is already taken for Cruddy Snow! Even Black Crow.

    Slud was Dizzy Dean’s past tense of slide.

    “Slud” huh? OK. But not to be confused with “slu(t)”, which is also dirty and nasty, but something else entirely. (Brackets were included because my use of the actual word was not allowed by the posting auto-censor).

    Don’t worry about it. You’ve got until May to figure out something. :)

    Don’t Eat The Yellow Snow (an excerpt)Frank Zappa 1978

    ♫And she said, with a tear in her eye

    Watch out where the huskies go,♫

    ♫And don’t you eat that yellow snow

    Believe it or not….that was considered explicit and not played on too many stations.

    “Slud” is a loose past-tense term for the verb “to slide”. When baseball Hall-of-Famer Jay Hanna “Dizzy” Dean retired, he became a broadcaster known for his colorful use of the English language, e.g., one day he announced that a player “slud into third”.

    “come up for (a term)…”? Surely that should be “come up with…” @jimmeddick

    If only the accumulated dirt from the rock salt was exposed, that would be bad enough. One day, walking to school, I noticed a dead dog that was slowly thawing out of a roadside snowbank.

    When I lived in ND, snow mixed with dirt was called “snirt.”
