Hercules and Ion and one missed

Two years ago the Weather Channel started naming winter storms. They said the main reason was to make communication clearer for weather people in order to tell what storm they were talking about. Here are the names for 2013-14. Very clever!

In between H and I we got a walk outside back to the grounds of our Benetwood Apartments. Lo and behold look what was there: 4:45 pm.

Some trivia about other names: Do you know what the names "Sophia" and "Jackson" have in common?

A huge storm (name?) came off Lake Ontario and socked Buffalo and western NY terribly early this week. Luckily it missed us and all others on the southern shore of Lake Erie.
