Why are they calling Sandy a superstorm instead of a hurricane?

Ok. Thank you. I've been wondering every time I read an article about it.

I'm pretty sure being "dumb" has nothing to do with your question but your avatar . . . ;)

There is a documentary on the weather channel about it. Pretty scary and devastating.

because it also threw snow when it hit further inland from hitting a coldfront. Hurricaines are usually just gale winds and rain when it hits further inland.
It affected like four coastal states and three or four inland states. Hurricanes don't "do" that kind of widespread damage across that many states.
