    What's this "Winter Storm Draco" stuff?

    When did we start naming blizzards? And what happened to the winter storms starting with A, B and C?

    While I think it is very gimmicky, I do think there is a lot of value in people being able to figure out where a storm is and when it might hit their particular area. Odd thing is, it was just a "winter storm" when it hit our area.

    NBC didn't let any of that Weather Channel naming nonsense on Nightly News.

    I guess if you're shoveling a metre of snow from your driveway, you can go, "Fucking Draco".

    Or if you get storm stayed in some podunk little town, you can start a bar conversation with " That bitch Snowball Suzy is why I'm here. Get me another Keith's" :)

    For $600 an hour, you'd better be able to call her whatever the hell you want

    Also, when did Hurricane Sandy become Superstorm Sandy? If any hurricane deserved Superstorm it was Andrew or Katrina.

    If they're going to name winter storms, they should go more modern and add hashtags as well.
