As Blizzard Nemo Strikes, Global Warming Won’t Be Far Behind

Is the naming of winter storms commonplace? I can't recall it being done previously, and one can only ponder why Nemo was chosen for this storm. Perhaps the last giant storm was named Moochelle and somehow I just missed hearing it loudly proclaimed by some nodding head on the tube.

I've lived in New England all my life and have NEVER heard of blizzard earning a name before. Except in retrospect (mostly), as "The Blizzard of '94."

The Weather Channel is trying for a bigger share of the limelight, by purporting to "name" winter storms. It's just a promotional gimmick. Consider the source, and move on.

Blizzard Nemo is bearing down on the Northeast- hence the term nor’easter to describe it- so prepare for the folks at Fashion Week, now being held in New York City, to be out in force battling the storm.

“The organizers of New York's Fashion Week,” reports the CSMonitor,  “a closely watched series of fashion shows held under a big tent – said they will have extra crews to help with snow removal and will turn up the heat and add an extra layer to the venue.”

We can only hope that they wear furs.

Because we’ll need blizzards of hilarity...
