If the current winter storm is named "Liam," will the next storm be named, "Neeson?" ??? LOL

They started naming everything Just to instill the Pavlovian response in all of us.

Out west, we get 60-70 mph storms come through every winter and they call them.............. storms.

Roads might get icy here for a few hours and everyone is freaking out. We'll be back to the high 60s by Friday.

Everyone has gone insane.

We got 3" of snow yesterday on top of what we got several weeks ago. Street are in good shape and most drivers were observing the six second count following distance except for a couple of dorks who probably can't count to six. Eight degree weather keeps traction manageable. I like to start out on ice or snow packed surfaces by seeing how much braking force is required to actuate the ABS. Very good way to determine safe following distance. When in doubt, increase following distance. From watching YouTube videos of Russian drivers, I would say most of them can't count,know nothing of safe driving habits and are tired of living.Apparently U turns are allowed in Russia. See lots of wheels coming off too. Saw one yesterday where the entire axle assembly came off a semi-trailer, including the air actuators and part of the air lines.

Naming winter storms conforms to NO METEORLOGICAL STANDARD anywhere in the world. It’s an invention by The Weather Channel to sell marketing, further a political agendena and enhance viewership. The Weahter Channel died when NBC bought it several years ago. A person under 40 wouldn’t know any of this and would unknowingly submit to the brainwashing and the Koolaid.

Actually I believe none of what you said is true.

That’s because you’re in MA and you didn’t read the article in the link you posted. Re-read YOUR article and take note that HURRICANES and TROPICAL STORMS are named. Winter storms-NEGATVE. KOOLAID—Drink up. Skoal.

The problem is, the NWS is now buying into this garbage.

I have an app on my phone which notifies me when there is storm activity. The problem is, it keeps going off every 20 minutes that there is a winter storm warning.

Woo. 8'' of snow. We're in Central NY ... 8'' of snow is something we don't even think about.

Ahh that was about tropical storms and hurricanes.... Not about winter storms, blizzards, or Pacific coast storms etc.. Trust me when I tell you this..... The National Weather Service was not all too impressed or pleased with this stunt pulled by the Weather channel... There was really no coordination between the WC people and the NWS. Bet you there are some aggervated people from the NWS and Weather Prediction Center inside their people towards the Champions at the roopty Doo Weather channel.
