So I am gathering to all you that is nothing folks. your 2 feet of snow in a 3 hour period always comes with hurricane force winds? All this combined with trees that are already weekend by a hurricane. People Who still have no heat from the hurricane? People who have condemned houses who are still in shelters?

Here in the north east our 2 feet of snow storms are nor easters which usually carry hurricane force winds, and things like thunder snow and flooding. Pretty much hurricanes in the winter.

Indeed. I am waiting for them to name summer time storm systems that bring storms and tornadoes and flooding for days as it moves through different states.

This is something a lot of people fail to take account is the winds associated with the snowfall. Since this is a densely packed area it makes for a huge deal to us here.Also its not everyday here we get this kind of storm rolling by and dropping almost 2 ft in one hour. My town is expecting 25-30 inches which doesn't help since my car has a donut :( Also, I cant wait to see the lightning off this storm, should be interesting.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.


Let it snow ON YOU.

We don't want it.

I wish they wouldn't ****ing name a winter storm. The weather channel is the ONLY place that does it, they started it this year. It's stupid.


Agreed. Anything to grab attention.

Winter storms should just be called Satan.

Ever since NBC/Universal/Comcast took ownership of the channel they've gone down hill. I know (and cannot find now) that NOAA ask that anyone using NOAA data not to use the Weather Channel's names for storms other than hurricanes.
