I woke Sunday morning to a cup of coffee and word from The Weather Channel that a major winter storm this week could bring the seasons’ largest snow fall event to the north eastern U.S.
Winter Storm “Stella” is the name given by the people who specialize in weather panic to this suspected mother of all 2017 winter storms.
“Stella” is predicted to wreak havoc on the people in New York, Boston, and other places.
And if you only watched the Weather Channel, you would think everyone in the storm’s path are unable to comprehend it’s dangerous potential without their help.
“Stella”??…seriously? I know I’ve written in the past about how silly I think it is that the powers that be think it’s a great idea to name winter weather events.
But if it’s important that we do so, can’t we come up with a more fierce sounding name than “Stella”?
“Stella” sounds like a great name for a poodle, or a cuddly kitten, but not a winter storm.
What’s wrong with “Thor”, or “Bob”?
“Stella” just doesn’t make me afraid.
That’s the way I see it.
