A Storm With No Name


    It is expected to snow this weekend. Sunday to be exact.

    You will be told by some in the Connecticut media universe that the storm is called Aspen. Others will call it Ember. Others will call it “the first significant snowfall of this winter season.”

    Officially, unlike hurricanes, the U.S. government will call it “a winter storm,” because unlike hurricanes, winter storms can form and re-form multiple times so naming them becomes a both redundant and repetitive* exercise.

    We are not making a moral judgment here. We are just telling the truth in case you are confused.

    *The use of redundant and repetitive was intentional.
