The Calm After the "Strom"

Tropical Storm Irene made its way to Connecticut in 2011. Two months later, a nor'easter stormed in — pun intended.

The August tropical storm and the October snowstorm left hundreds of thousands of state residents without power — many for more than a week. In the storms' wake, Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy created a special panel to assess the preparations for and responses to a pair of weather events that left many in the dark, literally.

Gov. Malloy's "Two Storm Panel" can be critiqued for missing a hyphen, but at least storm is spelled correctly. I guess CT News Junkie didn't closely view the agenda. Check out the fifth item down on the website's edition of "Morning Coffee & Politics," which my friend Abby e-mailed to me. What's a "Two Strom Panel"? Is that a two-person panel consisting of former U.S. senator Strom Thurmond and another member with the same first name?

I'm sure CT News Junkie will weather this "strom." If not, I may have to convene a special panel.
