What the Blizzard Should Go By (Other Than ‘Gorf’)

The snowstorm that is upon us has several names so far.

There’s “Snowzilla”. “Jonas.” And “Make Winter Great Again,” among others.

At Borderstan, our readers were fans of “Gorf,” which was co-editor Tim Regan’s humble suggestion. They weren’t that into the “U Street Silencer,” “The Dupont Disaster of 2016,” or “Columbia Heights Harbinger of Doom,” however.

Our readers had a few other ideas for blizzard monikers, including “Snow v. Wade,” “SnowWayOut,” “Snow Wars: The Winter Awakens,” “Bombogenesis 2016” and “The (snow) Force Awakens.”

Do you have any other suggestions for storm names? Include them in the comments. And if you went out today, tweet or email us your photos.
