  •  I like the winter storm names (12+ / 0-)

    as a gimmick, it works for catalouging and tracking purposes. I may not like the list but it's a concept that I'm glad the Weather Channel has taken up.

    And besides, Europeans have been doing this for 60 years now although it's clear it's time they do some coordination. I'm surprised that of all the things European that this site seems to love, the storm names is the one thing they don't.

    I mean really?

    Dawkins is to atheism as Rand is to personal responsibility (not an original but rather apt)

    •  I think it's more a feeling that TWC did it as a (6+ / 0-)

      gimmick, along with the upsurge in other "fluff" they're doing.  

      It is called The Weather Channel for a reason...when I can't get my local weather during critical winter events...what good is it?

      Sorry if that was a bit too rant-y.  But I have gotten deeeply annoyed with something that was once a favourite channel.


      We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.
