This is the second year that Winter Storms have been "named" by the Weather Channel. We are already at Winter Storm Dion and it's just December 9th. Last year I was kind of ambivalent about the naming of Winter Storms, but I have gotten used to it! It's easier to talk about the storm, and I am used to storm names, having lived in hurricane territory.

The storms were named with the help of the Latin Class of Bozeman High School in Bozeman, Montana. Last year there were 27 named storms. I'm really hoping we don't get past Winter Storm Maximus!
