The Weather Channel has announced it will start naming storms this winter, and some people think it’s a bad idea.
“How? I mean, what qualifies as a storm? It seems like we have a lot; I mean, how many storms are there? Can we keep track and differentiate? I can’t. I mean, I don’t feel like I can.”

According to The Weather Channel, storms would be named after gods and goddesses.
“That sounds like it would get confusing. There would be a lot of names.”
Even more confusing, The Weather Channel is a commercial organization, unlike the National Weather Service. So channels who choose to copy the idea could come up with their own names, too.MORE NEWS: 3 Men Wanted For Stealing ATM From Convenience Store In Brewerytown, Philadelphia Police Say
