    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.

    Winter Storm Magnus sounds terrifying.

    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.

    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.

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

    The better to scare you with. I prefer things like "Winter Storm Imminent Death" myself.
