Help CWG name the potential storm

Suggestions are in, now it's time to vote. Click to go to the polls.

As we gear up for the impending storm on Friday: we face an urgent decision. What are we going to call it? We've already had a "snowpocalypse." Can there be two snowpocalypses without undermining the meaning of the term? I'm doubtful. Many readers have suggested names in our comments section, such as "snowbliteration," "Snowpocalypse II: The Revenge!!," "Super Snowl," and "The Great Superbowl Superstorm of 2010," which already has a Facebook fan page, as does Snowpocalypse.

The storm was a regionally trending topic on Twitter this afternoon, with the most popular hashtag being the rather nonsensical "snomgasm." Other hashtag candidates in the running are #snOMG2, #SNOMFG, #snowtweets, and #dcsnow. Personally, I like to personify storms a bit more, like we do with hurricanes. Anyone else want to call this storm Kaiser Soze? Who's with me? My brother just suggested #snobama and #universalsnocare.

Comment with your recommendations for storm name and/or Twitter hashtags. You can be original or cast your vote for existing candidates. Keep it clean though, please. Tomorrow, we'll narrow down the recommendations and run a poll to crown the winners.
