Sentence: Gloria faces the upcoming Spring with snowrefrets. The fact that her resolution to go to the gym froze during the first snowfall and her diet since Thanksgiving has been much like a polar bear with an unlimited source of harp seals has left her dreading the work she will need to do if she was to avoid a summer of muumuus.

Etymology: snow (atmospheric water vapor frozen into ice crystals and falling in light white flakes or lying on the ground as a white layer) + regrets (feel sad, repentant, or disappointed over something that has happened or been done, esp. a loss or missed opportunity) + fret (be constantly or visibly worried or anxious)
