Why does the storm have a name, when snowstorms for millennia haven’t had names?
So that the TV news can create cool graphics and comedians can write jokes based on the name. Also, #Nemo is an easier hashtag than #BlizzardOf2013.
Why is it named Nemo?
Who named it Nemo?
The Weather Channel.
Does the Weather Channel have the authority to name storms?
Not really. They are either confused about their job, or just got bored. Their job is supposed to be reporting the weather, not naming it.
Did anyone ask the storm what its name was?
