Mark this date on your calendars; Ransom got one niggling little fact wrong! It's called a "nor'easter" because the wind comes from out of the northeast, not because the storm hits the northeastern seaboard. Can't say I saw anything else wrong, so he's got a better batting average than any major league player on the juice.

Heh, heh...Correcting a mistake with a mistake is sort of funny. A Nor'easter is named from the direction the wind blows! TOWARD the NE, not FROM the NE. See the link below. Chief Boring USN Ret.

As the storm comes up the coast, spinning in a counter clockwise direction, the wind comes from the northeast bringing moisture from over the ocean and dropping it on the land.

Howsuffworks, if indeed they say the opposite, would be getting it wrong. It is called a Nor'easter because the wind blows out of the north east, and is such a bad storm because of the moisture coming in with that wind, dropping an inordinate amount of snow.

Seriously, a good read--I especially liked the part about AlGore farting sideways; he never could do anything the right way!

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...
