Related: Any particular reason why "Hurricane Sandy" keeps getting referred to as "Super Storm Sandy?"
It was a super storm?
Tao: They (the weather channel) decided to name winter storms similarly to how they name non-winter storms to raise awareness.
I guess I don't see a problem with it.
I just wish they would give the storms names like:
"Thor's Hammer of snow"
"Snowmagedden VII the end of clear streets"
That would raise awareness even more.
