Weather Whether We Like it or Not

Headline:  How much snow did Nemo bring?

Enough already.  Nemo is a fictional fish.  I understood the naming of tropical storms, but what is it with the personification of every weather disturbance that occurs anywhere?

NOAA:  Get over yourselves.

What is with naming everything? Who started that and why do we still do it?

Lin, I truly haven't a clue.

I found out today. The Weather channel has taken it upon themselves to name storms--so "people can track them eaiser." The national weather service is NOT happy about this and has asked them to stop.

Lin, interesting. Thanks. I should have done a bit of research before I landed on NOAA.
