    I am going to hazard a guess here.............most of these " must name the storm " people don't live anywhere near the hills ....probably. Might I just add my objection to skimax throwing Kelpies Revenge into the mix , we Kelpies want nothing to do with the naming of a storm.

    It's a little thing called entertainment. Though I wouldn't classify, trying to think of the crappiest names that CC would never use, as entertaining...

    Dude,
    its some light-hearted fun, about snow falling, in winter, on ski resorts, for skier and boarders. FFS if that's not exciting and worth a laugh what is?
