What's all the hype about this snowstorm?

For whatever reason, winter storms now get named by The Weather Channel.  See Wiki for a mildly interesting article about that.  Since storms are generally named alphabetically, I have to wonder about this week's winter storm "Stella."  S is the 19th letter of the alphabet.  What happened to storms A to R?  Why have I never heard of any of them?  Who gets to determine if a storm qualifies for a name?

Well, regardless, we do have a storm this week.  Last night, local schools were given an early dismissal for today.  At 5 AM, they were cancelled.  Snow began gently falling around 9:30 AM.  I began taking a series of photos around 10:30.  This afternoon, I noticed many friends were doing the same thing for "The Facebook" (as in, FB knows all, FB tells all).  Great minds think alike, I tell ya.

So, this post is a bit of a cliffhanger, as we're only halfway through the storm and the last photo I took was at 7:15 PM, but tune in tomorrow for more photos.  The color in these pictures is all pretty true to life.  There was a lot of white air and the evening shots were incredibly blue.  All kind of weird.
