I love the web!  
Chionophobia (approximately kye' uh nu phobia) is the pathological fear of snow.

(I also love working at a university that gives me free access to the OED online.)

Speaking of the OED, have you read The Professor and the Madman?

No; haven't heard of it.

Here's the Amazon link, with a better description than I could muster. I just took it back to the library after enjoying it thoroughly.

Correction: I do remember now having heard of it. It looks fascinating, and I've added it to my list of things I want.
