I know what you are thinking…”What is this?!”  That was my reaction when I first heard of this Boston catch phrase that is spreading through the blogosphere.

It is a rating scale for winter storms similar to the color scale Homeland Security uses for its state of awareness. uses this “French Toast Alert System” to warn its users of the impending doom of a coming snow storm in a cute light hearted  way.

Yesterday, while helping to teach some youngsters at Young Broadcasters of America, I had the honor to alert the public that were are in a state of French Toast alert! Silly I know…but fun anyway. Enjoy!
