Winter Storm ‘Nemo’ is Headed to Maine – When Did We Start Naming Winter Storms?

You may have heard that it is winter in Maine and we are expecting a big snow storm this weekend. Those things happen. What is new is that apparently winter storms are getting names. This big storm that is expected to bring us one to two feet of snow is being called “Nemo.”  Really?  All I think of it a cute little clown fish.  This naming of winter storms is something The Weather Channel has started.

I can see where this makes sense, especially for The Weather Channel. That is what they do, weather stuff. At times when things are quiet or they are marking the anniversary of a major weather event it can be a little confusing to flip it on.  If they have the storm name, it might make it a little easier to follow.  Let’s be honest. It makes having a winter storm a little more warm and fuzzy if it has a name.  Get ready, Nemo is coming.
