Poll: Name The Great Storm of 2016

Snow Day in Reston

Reston Now readers are witty folks. So let’s have some fun and give this giant snowstorm heading here a name.

The Weather Channel is calling it Jonas. The Washington Post, after asking for reader suggestions, is calling Snowzilla.

Past DC big deals have been the Knickerbocker blizzard of 1922, the Presidents’ Day snowstorm of ’79, Snowmageddon. But Jonas? That’s a name for your new baby, not the storm that swept Reston shelves of bread and toilet paper four days in advance.

Here are a few suggestions, so take our poll and/or suggest a name in the comments.

Stay warm, Reston.
