  1. The weather channel only names the winter storms to artificially amp up the drama of the storm destruction. Manufacturing the severity of the storm draws viewership and names puts an unneeded human element on the situation.

  2. TIL somebody names winter storms.

    “I can’t get to work today, boss, because of Bob.”

    “Bob from Accounting.”

    “No, Winter Storm Bob. He’s six inches, maybe more.”

    “You’re fired.”
