So we’re supposed to get (actually should already be, according to the Satellite) a bunch of rain and some wind tonight and tomorrow. Maybe we should start naming our storms?
Why do Hurricanes and Typhoons get all the fun? We don’t get no respect.
There’s gotta be rules though right? So here’s the three.
Season is from November 1 to April 1. Any one Wind, Rain, or Snow warning issued for Vancouver Island Inland Sections or both a Wind and Rain warning issued for West Coast Vancouver Island.
Update: 17:00PST Wind and Rain Warnings are posted for various sections of the Island, except for Inland, though that might not last. (West Coast has only a Wind Warning so far.. so this storm isn’t named Yarko yet) 😉
Update: 18:47PST SNOW! It’s been snowing here since about 6PM. Wet Snow.. but snow all the same. It’s starting to accumulate on the road, our car, and the yard. Woohoo! Much excitement for our 3 year old. 🙂 Environment Canada is forecasting the the storm to blow in warm air by morning… should be about 8 Degrees.. unless the forecast changes of course. 😉
Here’s the list of storm names… we’ll start from Z just to be difficult.

Zorro… Nov 11/12 storm
Alemany (of course! :P)
There you have it… I expect all newscasts on TV, radio and online to use these names from now on. I’ll be petitioning Anne McCarthy at Environment Canada for them to use them in their forecasts.
Anne? You reading this?
