Cowart's Common Room
Storm Doris

Himself mentioned 'Storm Doris' yesterday.

I said, haven't we had her before? I'm sure there was a Storm Doris last year. What was the last one? Did I miss 'Storm Christine' last week?

What is with this naming of weather? Will it make it more friendly, will we be more able to survive whatever Mother Nature throws at us if we give it a name?

I've just checked the weather forecast, apparently it will be windy (40 mph) with sleet between 1 and 3 o'clock tomorrow.

I recall in 1979 when the forecast was for 'some' snow over the Pennines, and we were snowed in for three days.Very Happy

Fennie's Avatar Makes it more dramatic. 'Did you suffer with Doris' 'Did Doris visit?' 'I'm clearing away Doris' debris.' But who chooses the names? The next one could be Storm Ethelred, or Storm Ethan (stormethan?) Could be a homework: naming storms.Very HappyVery Happy

Fairy Nuff's Avatar I understand it's to make it easier to refer to them especially afterwards, easier to remember than dates.
Hopefully Doris will be gentle.
