Gemini huh? My niece is a Gemini. If her personality is any indication, Gemini will be a very fun, interesting, and wild winter storm to follow. :P

Also Quintus is about as close as I'll get to having my name as a storm, it's very similar to my middle name. (if you add in an a,v, and o after the "t" it actually is my middle name.)

That was my least favorite class, too.  I even liked math better than that!

At this rate, we're going to run out of names before winter even begins...

I was hoping TWC would not name winter storms again, but I guess not.  Obviously it's a big publicity stunt.

Meh, I don't think it's really a publicity stunt anymore. They're obviously very serious about this whole naming scheme thing.

A year later, I'm still not for it, but so far it's been harmless. It's just a cutesy way of communicating storms to people to keep track of.

As much as i want to call it a publicity stunt they must know alot more than the average viewer who complains about it to do the names for a 2nd year in a row. i say give it time and it will become a staple like the current Hurricane names we are used to every year.

It might become a permanent staple for TWC, but I doubt it'll ever go beyond them into adaptation.

The difference is that the government has a mandate to issue names for tropical cyclones, and, as such, they're recognized the world over, just as names issued by other governments in their own areas are also recognized.  These winter storm names are coming from a private business, essentially, and are mandated by no one; in fact, they're actively rejected by the U.S. government.  However, the press is increasing its use of them - not only NBC, for obvious reasons, but also various newspapers and other media.  That alone may turn the tide into widespread acceptance of these names, even if they remain "unofficial."

Please watch what thread you're posting in.  This post really has nothing to do with winter storms.  Thanks.

Sorry for posting this in the wrong thread.. during the last 30 minutes of Morning Rush and into Wake Up With Al it kept going black and then just disappearing. Then on the Hurricane Hunters at 2:30 they had a big one and a small one on at the same time at one point. They finally got it worked out..lol
