Winter Storm Q? WTF????

Did they run out the ability to use 4 letter names?

A storm called "Q"..?

Winter Storm Q will lay down a swath of significant snowfall from the mountains of California all the way to the Midwest over the next several days.

7. This morning the Weathe Channel was talking about Storm "Plato"

Now we have "Q" from Wunderground?

Well it's sad but Weather Underground got bought out by GE which is now bought out by NBC...so another good site goes down into the corporate fluff talk dust.



BUT "Q?" Is this a "007 Storm?"

13. I am very much hoping that Q is bringing tricked out Aston Martins

..and a briefcase with some tear gas, two strips of gold pieces, and a flat throwing knife. The ring from Diamonds are Forever that makes slot machines pay out would be useful if there were still actual slot machines.

I'm told, instead, it's bringing 10" of snow
