Winter Storm Brutus
I live here in northern Montana, and we get snow.

Now, our snow has a name, and it is called Brutus. 12 inches of snow, maybe a blizzard. Why the fuck are we naming winter storms unless someone knows something, and will need to keep a record of the severe storms we get?

Re: Winter Storm Brutus
Not sure why winter storms would have names, seems odd.
But I can say this..I accidently heard a convo between some players in the game yesterday and word is..stock up extra on batteries, flashlights, water, candles. ..It had something to do with warmer than normal temps and an expected sudden drop.

Just sayin..

Re: Winter Storm Brutus
I honestly dont think the 2nd will be repealed in the way you think. there are too many informed citizens and gun owners out there. I think this will be a long process taking about 30 years to complete. first, the media will start bashing gun owners, and making firearms 'uncool.' Then, there will be a ban on certain types of guns (wider bans than now) but there will be a grandfather law excluding previously purchased guns.

then, ammunition will have to be registered annually, and the available ammunition and firearms for purchase will be so expensive, that the purchase of new firearms will be next to impossible.

Then, the grandfather laws will begin to be repealed, and only handguns will be legal, and they will not take hand guns for about another 60 years.

they will not worry about the majority of handguns, because they stand nothing next to a high powered assault rifle that the military carries.

Re: Winter Storm Brutus
Snow will develop over Montana and central Idaho on Thursday. There will also be snow farther west over the Oregon Cascades and the northern Sierra Nevada in California.

The worst conditions are expected over parts of northern Montana, where blizzard warnings are in effect from Thursday morning through early Saturday morning - a long period of dangerous travel conditions. Winter storm warnings cover much of western and central Montana, including the Interstate 15 and Interstate 90 corridors.

By Friday, this snow expands south into the central and perhaps even southern Sierra. The mountains of Utah, and potentially western Colorado as well, should get in on the snow by the end of Friday.

Friday night into Saturday, the snow and wind will expand east into eastern Montana and North Dakota. Gusty winds will whip this snow sideways across the open prairie, leading to potential near-blizzard conditions along Interstate 94.

On the Weather Channel last night, they told us for the first time in history they were naming the winter storm that was hitting this area. It was called Athena, here in Jersey and along the east coast.

But they didn't say WHY they were naming it.

During the upcoming 2012-13 winter season The Weather Channel will name noteworthy winter storms. Below is our list of names, along with some information about the origins of the names.

Athena: The Greek goddess of wisdom, courage, inspirations, justice, mathematics and all things wonderful.

Brutus: Roman Senator and best known assassin of Julius Caesar.

Caesar: Title used by Roman and Byzantine emperors.

Draco: The first legislator of Athens in Ancient Greece.

Euclid: A mathematician in Ancient Greece, the father of geometry.

Freyr: A Norse god associated with fair weather, among other things.

Gandolf: A character in a 1896 fantasy novel in a pseudo-medieval countryside.

Helen: In Greek mythology, Helen of Troy was the daughter of Zeus.

Iago: Enemy of Othello in Shakespeare’s play, Othello.

Jove: The English name for Jupiter, the Roman god of light and sky.

Khan: Mongolian conqueror and emperor of the Mongol empire.

Luna: The divine embodiment of the moon in Roman mythology.

Magnus: The Father of Europe, Charlemagne the Great, in Latin: Carolus Magnus.

Nemo: A Greek boy’s name meaning "from the valley," means "nobody" in Latin.

Orko: The thunder god in Basque mythology.

Plato: Greek philosopher and mathematician, who was named by his wrestling coach.

Q: The Broadway Express subway line in New York City.

Rocky: A single mountain in the Rockies.

Saturn: Roman god of time, also the namesake of the planet Saturn in our solar system.

Triton: In Greek mythology, the messenger of the deep sea, son of Poseidon.

Ukko: In Finnish mythology, the god of the sky and weather.

Virgil: One of ancient Rome’s greatest poets.

Walda: Name from Old German meaning “ruler.”

Xerxes: The fourth king of the Persian Achaemenid Empire, Xerxes the Great.

Yogi: People who do yoga.

Zeus: In Greek mythology, the supreme ruler of Mount Olympus and the gods who lived there.



Weather Channel admits this concept is a cross of professionalism and novelty:

The process for naming a winter storm will reflect a more complete assessment of several variables that combine to produce disruptive impacts including snowfall, ice, wind and temperature. In addition, the time of day (rush hour vs. overnight) and the day of the week (weekday school and work travel vs. weekends) will be taken into consideration in the process the meteorological team will use to name storms."


(lots of filler text)

"Finally, it might even be fun and entertaining and that in itself should breed interest from our viewing public and our digital users. For all of these reasons, the time is right to introduce this concept for the winter season of 2012-13."

Apparently the NWS (National Weather Service) does not agree with this:

[link to articles.chicagotribune.com]
"TWC has named the nor'easter Athena," said the memo, which a weather service spokeswoman confirmed. "The NWS does not use name winter storms in our products. Please refrain from using the term Athena in any of our products."

But it looks like Wikipedia is supporting this?
