Nemo Hype Ramps Up

I was working in Sandy Hook, Connecticut during February, 2011 (after I got back from Lisbon.) The snow was 36 inches deep – going into early March.

I am already seeing news stories that 12-18 inches of snow would be historic. Historic, as in the biggest storm in two years.

    Meanwhile, across the Bering Sea, sea-ice looks to approach last year’s record extent by the beginning of next week.
    Look how far south of the Bering shelf the ice gets.

    So far, in fact, they’ve yet to issue the forecast for certain sectors of the Anchorage ice desk forecast area due to what’s looking to be rather unprecedented sea-ice advance in this region.

    Nemo? What a joke… where do you find the names, Mr. Goddard? I looked on NOAA and could not find the names.

    Unprecedented! Unbelievably rare! This must be the first time the name of a winter storm started with an “N”! It is probably related to AGW or the Chicken Little Brigade that promotes BS like this! ;)

    Unless the media hype it, its just some bad weather. In this case, it is ‘unprecedented’, proof of AGW etc etc. etc…

    This storm will be puny compared to the one that hit the northeast in 1888. That’s why no mention is made of it.

    The Great Blizzard of 1888 or Great Blizzard of ’88 (March 11 – March 14, 1888) was one of the most severe recorded blizzards in the history of the United States. Snowfalls of 40-50 inches (102–127 cm) fell in parts of New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut, and sustained winds of more than 45 miles per hour (72 km/h) produced snowdrifts in excess of 50 feet (15.2 m). Railroads were shut down and people were confined to their houses for up to a week.

    “Thanks. Since when do regular, everyday winter storms deserve a name? Are they going to start naming tornadoes now? They are more destructive, after all. Just think of all those tornados to be named each season!?”

    I’m in agreement with Luke of the D. When did run-of-the-mill winter storms start getting names? When I saw the storm name on weatherunderground, I didn’t believe that an average storm had a name. WTF?

    Driving to work this morning I kept hearing the nonstop storm hype (Severe Weather Alert!), all over 24 inches of snow in the northeast. WTF? If it was Atlanta, I might understand. When I was a kid, we simply called it a ‘snow day’.

    Is this because it is a thing of the past?

    Someone had to find Nemo again, so I guess it’s fitting the clowns pick a proper name to keep the hook all their little fishies….
