We are only hours away from getting walloped by a massive blizzard of historic proportions. For some reason the National Weather Service decided a few years ago to name winter storms. They have named this one ‘Juno’.

When the National Weather Service started to name winter storms the folks over at WFSB here in Connecticut were pretty annoyed since they had been naming winter storms here in our fine state since the 1970s!

Here at CT BOOM we tend to always go by WFSB’s storm name since they were doing it well before the National Weather Service. Though, I have an issue with what the decided to name this incoming disaster of a storm. WFSB says that this winter they have decided to name all the storms after ‘Top 40 pop stars’. We already had “Ariana” earlier this winter named of course after Ariana Grande. This time around have dubbed it ‘Blizzard Colbie’ after the pop star singer/songwriter Colbie Caillat. While I have no problem with Colbie or her music (in fact she’s on of the most attractive/least annoying pop star singers out there) I do have a problem with her name as this Blizzard. It’s possible that they are trying to be cute and play the “oh she’s so sweet, soft spoken and cute so she’s the exact opposite of a horrible disastrous blizzard” card. Which sure, I get it. But why not go with a more aggressive mess of a pop star? There is clearly no shortage of them out there.
