Mr. Blustery? The Storm that Particularly Hated Duvall?

The National Weather Service is asking us, the citizens of Puget Sound, to come up with a name for our recent storm. The last two big storms had the courtesy to land on special days. There was "Inauguration Day Storm" (1993) and "Columbus Day Storm" (1962). This one didn't happen to land right on a handy holiday - I guess "Ten Days Before Christmas Storm" doesn't have the same ring to it. Our storms aren't hurricanes, so they don't follow that naming system, and the winds weren't strong enough to merit typhoon status.

So, the weather people are asking us to suggest names for our storm (through January 4).
