    Re: Winter storms to get names

    Do not buy it. If they're naming winter storms, they would have used my mother in law's name. Bitter, cold, blustery, and ruins your day upon arrival.

    Actually get along great with my mother in law, but the joke was there, couldn't pass up.

    I am so embarrassed that I assumed the same thing. *Nerd alert over here*

    Is "Iago" named after the character in Othello, or the bird in Aladdin​?

    Winter Storm Yogi ain't gonna be over till it's over. It's gonna be a real bear of a storm. These seem to be chosen simply so even the lamest meteoroligist can make a joke.
