Better Names for Winter Storms

The biggest weather events have names that seem quite innocuous, considering the destruction. Hurricane Sandy reminded us of the Olivia Newton-John character from Grease. Winter storm Nemo brings up a cute little Disney fish. "Snowpocalypse" was good, but it wasn't official. Happy Place came up with a list of names that inspire a more appropriate level of dread, including YouTube Commenter, Facebook is Down, and others that are frankly quite internet-centric. I think we can do better. How about winter storm Lucifer? Winter storm Zuul? Of course, a medium-sized storm could be something like Nellie Olson or Biff Tannen. Can you come up with others? Link

winter storms shouldn't have names at all, the only reason The "Weather" Channel is naming them is because of hurricane Sandy. they realized after Sandy that they could make more money if they named all the storms. TWC is a fear mongering corporation, naming winter storms doesn't help anyone understand the severity of the storm or how they should prepare for it, its only a distraction to give the weather channel more publicity.

and dont even get me started on their coverage of hurricanes!
