I wonder if National Weather Service gone too far into the Apocalypse thing, naming a winter storm Draco, Latin for dragon.
I know of the constellation, but the Weather Channel actually is claiming they were naming it after the Greek lawgiver.
Wait til y'all check this out
Yes, a winter storm could be named Gandolf, Q, or Orko!
Orko as in the Orko from he-man?
The Weather Channel is claiming Orko, as in the Basque thunder god, but really how many people would even think that there was even a Basque thunder god named Orko? We all will be thinking of He-Man if Orko hits!
You're right I certainly didn't know there was a Basque thunder god.
That Weather Channel list has so many unintentional jokes in it. Really, Q for a NYC subway line, not say a James Bond invention or a demigod-like being in Star Trek, in a list of historical people and mythological/literary characters? OK?
