dump
 n.— «“We’ve had a lot of snow,” veteran weather observer Jim Markalunas told The Aspen Times, “but they’ve all been small increments, 4, 5 or 6 inches.” Markalunas, who has monitored Aspen’s weather since the mid-1950s, tracks the number of “big dumps,” which he defines as anything in excess of 10 inches within 24 hours.» —“Too much of a good thing” by Allen Best Summit Daily News (Frisco, Colo.) Jan. 28, 2006.
