Say (or write) what you mean

I just noticed a headline on my iGoogle page:

Winter Storm Dumps Heavy Snow on Colorado

It was about 50 degrees in Denver today, so my first thought was, "Really?"

Reading the article, it turns out that what they really meant was "Winter Storm Dumps Heavy Snow on Colorado Mountains," or "Winter Storm Dumps Heavy Snow on Western Colorado."

I think this shows the importance of writing what you mean, even in the headline.
