cgraves67: 1) Does the Weather Channel have the authority to make these names conventional or will every local broadcast news meteorologist start coming up with his or her own names?2)Do they really think that a certain percentage of the population won't have a problem with naming weather phenomenae after pagan gods? Sure, we have months and days named after them, but those are so ingrained in our culture that most fundies don't even realize they are paganized.

germ78: CapeFearCadaver: Freyr's a great name for a blizzard.I'd love to be in a blizzard, just once... from NC... we're lucky if we get a sheet of ice once a yearI used to think that until about 18 months ago when we got hit with a huge blizzard in Chicago. fark that shiat. Cat 1 hurricane strength winds all night. Can't see anything but solid gray-white 100 feet in front of you. 2 feet of snow needing to be shoveled off the driveway. The snow plows only came around once before concentrating on main roads for the rest of the week. We were lucky that the power stayed on and that we had what we needed in the fridge./we tend to get heavy snows (20+ inches) roughly every 10-20 years, but this one was really the first one I'd call a blizzard that happened in my lifetime//I wasn't born yet for the blizzard of '68
