People have a lot of opinions about this nor’easter’s ‘unofficial’ name
As the latest, greatest nor’easter ramps up along the Mid-Atlantic coast, more and more people are choosing to stay home until the snowfall stops.
Which means they have lots of time to spend online.

On Twitter, the joke du jour seems to be about the storm’s unofficial name, Quinn, which was given to it by The Weather Channel in a transparent attempt at weather marketing. (The National Weather Service does not name winter storms.)
This naming of storms is out of control – I just saw a segment on @weatherchannel where they referred to the inbound storm as “Winter Storm Quinn, First of Her Name, Queen of Flakes and The First Drifts, Khaleesi of the Great Frozen Sea, Breaker of Plows, Mother of Snowmen.”
