    Sounds like snow that has come unexpectedly, out of season. What is the sentence, or passage, within which the phrase appears?

    It sounds like a word play on 'freak show'.

    The phrase in which I saw the term (I guess that the term "one" is related to snow) was :" I woke up this morning to our first snowstorm of the winter (we had a freak one in the fall but no snow in November)". Can I relate the word "one" to snow or it means anything else?

    So, it's a freak snowstorm, which makes more sense. It was a "freak" snowstorm because it came in the fall, well before you would expect the first snow. And notice that the out-of-season snowstorm is not counted by the narrator as the first of the winter.

    Did anybody else notice the the poetic nature of this line? I woke up this morning to our first snowstorm of the winter (we had a freak one in the fall but no snow in November). Guess it's just the poet in me. :)

    It´s from a great author called Damodaran.
