For the record, New England doesn't name it's winter storms. 

Nemo was a name given by some lamestream media outlet...

We call it, Friday...it snowed some!  It's better now!

Some queer at the weather channel I think.

The National Weather Service started naming winter storms in the last year.  I don't know if they were feeling left out of the hype or if it was in response for the media's need for hype.  Or, it may be to help the politicians buy votes - They can make it easier for you to understand how much money they sent you because you had to start your snowblower.

Just got off the phone with a funeral director from between Norfolk and Virginia Beach.  I asked if he was waist deep in snow. 

His response:  "You been listening to them damn yankees?"  He went on to state he had a little over an inch of rain and 57 degrees.  However, he talked of his time in Maine, and said "if you can't live with it - MOVE!  I did it for many years, got sick of it, and moved back to the promised land."

Officially we got 10", not counting the 3-8' drifts. Winds are down now, major roads were closed - I-94 from Alexandria, MN to Jamestown, ND (maybe 200 miles) and I-29 from Watertown, SD to Grand forks (150 miles?). Most of it's open now, roads are cleared and life goes on.
