As I already mentioned, I’m really not thrilled with this “naming winter storms” thing. But that aside… Brutus? Who the hell is naming these storms? Besides the shameless sensationalism of the whole thing, the apparent theme Greek and Roman names is troublesome, as one doesn’t generally associate the Mediterranean with winter storms. Is the third one going to be Caligula?
Screw it - lets name hurricanes and tropical storms after reindeer next year. No no, lets sponsor them. Lets name storms after products. “Tropical Storm Swiffer cleans up Florida”. “Hurricane Jack Daniels wrecks Boston.” et cetera, et cetera.
