Michigan weather is nothing to mess with. One minute it can be sunny and warm out and 20 minutes later we can have gray skies with rain pouring down. And don’t get me started on the winters here in Michigan. While we have had pretty mild winters recently, I think the Weather Channel knows something we don’t. They started to create names for all the winter storms we could have. They have pre-planned names, A-Z. I think we could do a better job!
According to Weather.com, they have created names, A-Z, for all the possible winter storms that could happen this year. Most of the names are pretty bad. The first few are:
#1.) Athena. (–The Greek goddess of wisdom and courage, if you must know.
#2.) Brutus. (–The guy who killed Caesar.)
#4.) Draco. (–The first legislator in Athens . . . and the kid who bullied Harry Potter.)
#5.) Euclid. (–The mathematician who invented geometry.)
#6.) Freyr. (–A Norse god of weather.)
#7.) Gandolf. (–Yeah, they spelled it wrong. The wizard in “The Lord of the Rings” was Gandalf.
#8.) Helen. (–The daughter of Zeus in Greek mythology.)
#9.) Iago. (–Othello’s enemy in the Shakespeare play.)
#10.) Jove. (–The Roman god of the sky.)
Now, the Weather Channel might think they are pretty slick, but I think we can do better! What are some names you have in mind for the Michigan winter storms that we might have this year? You can read the Weather Channel’s complete list at Weather.com.
