Status as a blizzard[edit]

It is pretty clear that the storm was a blizzard. There were blizzard warnings issued, and observations confirm that blizzard conditions were met. Thus, it was a blizzard. The source used to question if it was a blizzard even states, "Meteorological data ­revealed that in many spots across the region, blizzard conditions were reached: three straight hours of blowing or falling snow that reduced visibility to less than a quarter of a mile and winds that frequently gusted to 35 miles per hour or more." The NWS considers it a blizzard; they are the only agency who gives the official American definition for blizzard; it was a blizzard. Inks.LWC (talk) 03:57, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

 It looks like a duck to me. As long as you source it in the article, it will be fine. Like that template! Thegreatdr (talk) 14:15, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

POV-section tag at Name section[edit]

Please do not remove this tag, unless one plans on fixing the problem. The problem is simple. The section states that the name “Winter Storm Nemo” was not used by a couple of organizations. However, it does not mention at all that many other organizations did use the term. Until this caveat is added in, the section is simply not neutral. RGloucester (talk) 16:40, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
