Thanks for these. Many are quite sobering.

It was a "named" storm? Interesting. Perhaps that may assist with insurance claims.

My understanding is when a storm is named your insurance deductibles increase for the claim period of the storm. Cloud

I read an article that stated that the named storm is not an official name given by NOAA, or the National Weather Service, but something thought up by The Weather Channel to hype up their 24 hour coverage. The NWS is careful not to call it by an un-official name.

It's not.
It was just The Weather Channel over-hyping as usual and gave it a name.

That is correct.... As said, there is not such thing as officially named winter storms; it is just TWC being 'Hollywood for meteorologists'. Names are only officially applied to subtropical and tropcial formed cyclones with adequate strength. Nor'easter origins and strengths don't match this; even the massive Ash Wednesday Storm in 1962 doesn't qualify.

Weather Channel is doing all it can to justify its existence. While not obvious, the TV portion of the Weather Channel is all that remains of it. All of the digital stuff, such as weather.com, was sold to IBM.
