    Winter storms to get names

    Of course the names are not coming from the National Weather Service rather from The Weather Channel. Guess they see money it it or something.

    Re: Winter storms to get names

    Very last line of the article:

    Finally, it might even be fun and entertaining and that in itself should breed interest from our viewing public and our digital users. For all of these reasons, the time is right to introduce this concept for the winter season of 2012-13.

    Re: Winter storms to get names

    Based on those names, I'm thinking this has to be a troll job. A very, very good troll job.

    I'm hoping we get Winter Storm Gandolf or "Q".

    They couldn't come up with a Q name so they just went with Q? Someone got lazy.

    Figured that was a reference to the character in Star Trek TNG, given that a couple other names on there appear to have roots in television and sci-fi.

    Re: Winter storms to get names

    I think the Q storm would be the most terrifying. You look outside, see the blizzard blowing snow everywhere, drifts up to your knees... then you hear the sound of someone snapping their fingers, see a bright flash, and BOOM! Borg everywhere. Game over, man, game over.

    Q is one of the best Star Trek characters, it's hilarious how ****** off Picard gets whenever they cross paths.

    So no more "Winter Death Storm"


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
