Why it's not a good idea to name Winter Storms

This picture from a Weather Channel broadcast was sent around on Twitter yesterday and forwarded to me from my friend Hugh. We both used to work there before they came up with the goofy idea to name Winter Storms. NOAA and the National Weather Service does not name winter storms. 
   In this case, the on-camera meteorologist was talking about what they called "Winter Storm Janus." 
Of course, from the camera angle and the place the guy was standing, it gives the storm a different meaning - and to some it really is a pain in that place. :) 
   Let this be a lesson to them not to name winter storms. They shouldn't fool with mother nature. :)

The importance of camera blocking. Sorry, . This kind of Tom Foolery never happened on my watch.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
