7. I was thinking a black hole, maybe this is why CERN is shut down.

You would think all that wind energy has to go somewhere and can't just all end in the middle like that.

4. They NAMED this storm???

I am sitting in the middle of it and have not heard that once. What is up with this stupid storm naming? This is just a snow storm that 3 years ago would never have made anyone blink. It's a big one but so? They freaking named this storm? *sigh*

5. The Weather Channel is naming winter storms. A gimmick for higher ratings

But you have to hand it to them, they have a sense of humor. There was a storm named Kahn earlier this season. They gave a BS explanation of the inspiration for the storm names, but any Trekkie can see though it.

6. As stupid as I think this is

I approve of being caught in "Q's" storm. Of all the characters, and there have been some amazing characters, I think he was always my favorite. OK, I will deal with it just this once

23. John de Lancie

His father was a wonderful oboist with the Philly orchestra. I have always liked the actor. The part of Q had to be a lot of fun.

21. well, I didn't like having my blizzard named after a goldfish

Much as I enjoyed the movie "Finding Nemo," there was no trouble finding the winter storm Nemo. If you lived east of the Mississippi or thereabouts, Nemo was pretty much everywhere!

While not the worst storm I've been through here in Maine (a week later we got an immeasurable amount of snow but with truly terrifying winds for 2 days nonstop), it rated better than a cute little lost goldfish.

11. That's what I would call an intercontinental hurricane.

Some bad shit is going on with our weather patterns. It's happening more frequently and rapidly. In my 45 years I have never experienced the type of wind-storms we are seeing now. Those winds are caused by the warming of the oceans, and they are packing more and more energy with each passing one.

13. If only that were a black hole sucking Oklahoma pols into oblivion. ETA:

I wonder where the wind goes once it reaches the middle of that vortex.

14. That's a very slow circulation

Wind speeds seem to be 0 to 10 mph, mostly.

15. Everything seems to be neatly deflecting above and below Idaho

Maybe the current storm warning won't turn out so bad.
