The Importance of Names

 Sometimes it's unavoidable.  Names evoke mental images.  And a huge winter storm deserves a huge name.
But we have Winter Storm Nemo.
If you are a literary person, then the infamous character named Nemo from "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" makes a whole lot of sense.  Diabolical, cunning and definitly scary.
But unfortunatly that Nemo wasn't the first to cross my mind when I heard the name.  And it's hard to be in awe when you are thinking of a cute little orange and white fish swimming in a tank waiting for his dad to rescue him. 
So here's to everyone who is in the middle of this storm...stay warm, stay safe.  Our prayers are with you.  Even in this storm named Nemo.
