A Pax on Your House

Why would The Weather Channel name the latest storm, headed to the Philadelphia region Thursday, Pax?

A Pax on Your House


We all know The Weather Channel does wifty things. Like naming winter storms.

Maxiumus was one thing, but now TWC has put a Pax on all our houses -- well, first those in the South -- by naming the latest storm Pax, headed our way Thursday.

To which we can only ask, why?

What does a winter storm have to do with peace?

Or perhaps the folks at The Weather Channel are naming things after Angelina Jolie's brood.

By conventional standards, that kind of inventive branding might serve the meterologists for several months. But this is not a conventional winter.

Where would a week be without a storm, a few school closings, and more problems for PECO?
