I was browsing Expedia today, and there was a banner "Winter Storm Stella may cause increased call volume."

Stopping using those stupid names that the Weather Channel idiots came up with. Tropical Storms are named because there very presence is deadly. So you need to be able to clearly communicate what warning or forecasts applies to what storm.

Yep.

Tropical storms and hurricanes are named by the World Meteorological Organization, a non-profit intergovernmental organization, for the purpose of clarity and safety.

Winter storms are named by The Weather Channel, a private company, for the purpose of media hype and increased revenue.

Approaching storm worked forever. Then it is storming! Storm over!
Now every winter storm is a blizzard!
You have to be a trained weather spotter to see a tornado?
