    When did we start naming winter storms? WLF?




    I didn't even know there was a Draco even coming....
    Although I must admit some of the names are cool.

    Lol, that's so stupid. Just an attempt by the sensationalist media to build up the hype of a snowstorm -- and to avoid being too subtle, they used names from movies and Greek mythology.

    That has got to be the most obvious fake list of fake-ness I have ever seen.

    Either that or /facepalm

    Not for winter storms though (non-coastal) - this appears to be a new thing this year. I wanted to check the 10 day forecast and I was informing that Draco is coming....or some crap.

    I read somewhere that the National Weather Service stated that they do not name winter storms.
    It sounds as if The Weather Channel made up these names for winter storms for their own purposes.

    I really enjoy the Snorg Tees ads. They're subtle.
