Quickie #0.01

There’s supposed to be some sort of winter storm coming up tonight or tomorrow or some shit.  I don’t really know or care because I’ll be in work anyways.  But I noticed on the weather.com page that they are calling it “Storm Saturn.”  When did we start naming every storm?  This seems new, right?  Did we get such a hardon for naming shit after Sandy that we’re gonna go balls to the wall naming every weather occurrence?

Know what I would LIKE to have defined to me?  What the shit is sleet?  What is it?  I don’t even know.  Frozen rain?  Freezing rain?  Snow and rain coming down together?  Those weird ice pellets that fell from the sky last week that I didn’t even understand since it looked like halite (sidewalk salt), I would like THAT to be named.
