OK, #1 this is the first winter the Weather Channel made themselves God and decided all winter storms needs names and everyone would use their names. And #2 it was obvious they were gonna run out of letters ANY year if they name a storm every time it snows. #3 It is not rare for Colorado to get snow into May.

ChrisDe: Weatherunderground and other weather sites should start providing their own names for winter storms. And CNN, Fox News, and everybody else. It would be a clusterfark of awesomeness.

Weatherunderground was bought by the Weather Channel, pissing off weather geeks like myself who hate the Weather Channel and all the hype they deliver. So since they are owned by the Weather Channel they listen to their daddy and go along with the stupid name thing.

Giving winter storms names is a way of inducing greater panic in the general public.

WelldeadLink: Tenatra: WelldeadLink: Tenatra:  I had been planning on going out and collecting rock samples, photographing rock outcrops

But what are the names of your rock outcrops?

I don't know off hand, we are supposed to go find three different ones and identify them.

Giving them names is giving them an identity.

The WEATHER CHANNEL an opportunity for marketing.
