As if the Weather Channel weren’t boring enough, they’ve decided to start naming winter storms (the same way they name hurricanes.) Because naming the storm after the year it occurred apparently wasn’t exciting enough for some people…
Another could be named Rocky, after one of the mountains, not the movie.
What name the storm gets will be determined by factors, including the
day and time it hits as well as the ice, snow, wind and temperatures it
produces, Niziol said.
Since Buffalo is always in line to get creamed by such storms, I think it’s only fair that we get to name the first storm of 2012-2013. Some early favorites include Winter Storm O.J., Winter Storm Irv, and Winter Storm LeRoy.
(Hey, if you’re still reading this crap, it’s your own fault. Everyone knows I ran out of material six months ago.)
