Meteorological nominclature

While the great blizzard of '11 seems to be fizzling out (here, anyway,) it's still not too late to come up with names for it. All the *mageddon terms that are being bandied about are based, of course, on the partly historical battle that is loosely called Armageddon, but which, if it really took place, happened at or near a settlement called Megiddo. So it could be Snowmegiddo, I suppose, which sounds something like a late-night-TV infomercial product, like SnoWow or Popiel's Pocket Catastrophe.

Since it doesn't look as though it's going to live up to its hype, it could be SnowFlake. Other possibilities:
  • sNowShow
  • SnowKwame
  • SnowTea
  • Snowgojevich (Heard much about him lately? Me neither)
  • Snow-Invest-In-Michigan-Without-Raising-Taxes
