If the weather channel uses a name like Nemo then the company is
probably leaving money on the table. Expect sponsored storms in the

The Rayovac Flashlight Superstorm of 2013
The Michelin Snow Tires Great Blizzard of 2014
The Honda Generator Whiteout of 2015

Of course, as Michael Everson points out, the name Nemo has a Disney
connection, so they might be persuaded to become sponsors.
