The public should get to vote on storm names, via the NOAA website.

Years from now we could be watching a news retrospective on the day Hurricane Weedlord Bonerhitler finally sunk Nawlins for good.

NOAA: Moooom, the weather channel is naming winter storms. He's coping me!

Mom: Weather Channel, NOAA was naming storm systems first.

Weather channel: that's not fair; he always gets to name storm systems!

I really only watch The Weather Channel to see which location of impending apocalyptic doom they've dispatched Jim Cantore to.

GAT_00: The whole thing is entirely so they make things more dramatic for ratings. Just look at the names they chose.


Nonsense.  Now excuse me, I have to turn on the weather news and see if storm Ivan the Terrible has been upgraded to a class 5 storm of death.

Do the reverse, like review blackmail web sites. We will name the storm Wal-Mart unless the company of the same name pays $1 billion.

When do the corporate sponsorship's start?

By Thursday, Altoid's Wintery Fresh Blast will blanket the area with 3 - 5 inches of snow. You'll want fresh breath to shovel THAT snow!

Awesome. I am not alone. It is ridiculous. It's like naming clouds. It is just stupid. Designed to make people feel like something important is happening to them weather wise. "Left out of the recent natural disaster-heres some clouds with a name on it to make you feel special."
