Should this storm be named? (POLL)

The Weather Channel is calling the storm in the forecast Winter Storm Pax.  I’m not sure what that means, but I digress.

At CWG, typically we only name high impact storms. Tonight’s storm could go either way…it will depend where you are. Along I-95 and points east, it may have more of moderate impact, whereas places to the west it could well be major.

So we’ll leave it up to you whether this storm should be named. Vote in the poll below.

For those of you think the storm should be named, feel free to offer suggestions. If the majority of our readers want the storm to be named, we’ll put up some of the best options for a vote later.
