Vote for storm name, Twitter hashtag & snow total

Despite the jinxing potential, last night we asked for suggestions on a storm name and twitter hashtags, and we received more than 300 suggestions both from comments and from you on Twitter. We've gone through them, and culled a few that were popular and some that we personally liked.

"Snowmageddon" was quite popular for a storm name, and it would also make a good hashtag. "The Great Superbowl Superstorm of 2010" is also popular. I was heartened that reader "SnowTony" altered my Kaiser Soze suggestion to "Kaiser Snowze," and it then garnered several endorsements.

Other noteworthy suggestions included: "#snowbowl", "#snowbliteration," "#CATASTRASNOW," and "#herewegoagain."

Continue reading for more of your thoughts and your chance to vote for names and tags, and how much snow you think will fall.

Creativity points go to reader "manatt" for ""The Great 2010 Less Than 2, 2 to 6, 6 to 12, 12+, Check Back Tomorrow Snowcastrophe," and Rcupps for "SnowmygodimnotshovelinganymoreofthiswhitecrapimmovingtoFLA." Unfortunately, that's too long for a storm name or a hashtag, but it is funny.

Some more thoughts from the tweeters out there:

@TheDoctor08 Alex Snowvechkin. Greatest snowstorm evar!!!!!1!!!11


@bmurray: Scheduled to be snowbliterated in 24 hours


@platinumforests In keeping with the "Snowpocalypse" theme, I say we name this weekend's barn buster 'Snowmageddon'


@quinalty Is this wknd going 2 B #Snowmageddon, #snOMG, #SnowF***Yourself, #KeyserSnowze, or #SnoWTF? Dunno, but it is #snomuch 4 me.

We can't promise we'll adopt the hashtag poll winner, since twitter hashtags tend to have a life of their own, but we'll do our best to do so. Thanks!
