"Names like Gandalf, Q, and Nemo (all on The Weather Channelís list of names for the 2012-13 storm season), will certainly make this yearís winter storms memorable."

I'm a little confused [In reply to] Can't Post

We were getting some weather here a week or so ago and dernwyn referred to it as 'Gandolf' and when I did a search, it was identifying it as Gandolf so I'm not sure why there's another storm now with either the same name or an almost identical one.

here's an article from Jan 9th:
http://www.weather.com/...med-gandolf-20130109

re: spelling of this storm, the Weather Channel said this:
Gandolf is named for a character in the William Morris fantasy novel The Well at The World's End (1896). Similar names such as Gandalf and Gandalfr can be traced to Norse sagas of the 12th century; the name is derived from the Norse words for "wand" or "staff" (also interpreted as "magic") and "elf."

You are correct, the first story used Gandalf instead of Gandolf. [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't see Q or Nemo on the list above either.
