    Just saw his diary about it. According to him, naming winter storms is a power play by The Weather Channel (largely owned by Bain Capital he says) so that people will tune in to them instead of serious meteorological experts like the National Weather Channel..

    He says:

    No reputable meteorological organizations use names to refer to winter storms.
    I wonder if they're against naming hurricanes, too. It might be addressed in the comments, but no time to read right now.

    Huh. Weather wars.
