Re: Naming Winter Storms

Barquito... definitely agree!!

sfman... agreed with your first sentence 100%, then you shot your whole argument down with your followup sexist comment. Wow... just wow!!

As for my two cents... I not only think it's a product of our sensationalist culture, but also a product of the marketing that pervades all parts of our life. Weather is big business for sure. Gone are the days of the weatherman telling us temp, wind, etc. They try to make everything into a story that will get more viewers and thus more ad dollars. Sad, but I guess they are just playing the game like everyone else. Sports has been playing the ad revenue game for quite a few decades now.
