With Nemo bearing down on the Northeast, it begs the question: Are power companies better prepared for this storm than they were for Sandy? Nearly 2K people in New Jersey an New York are still without power from the hurricane, and with Nemo expected to dump up to 30 inches of snow and near-hurricane gusts in some areas, it's a question worth asking.

    Ha ha, complete misuse of the expression 'begs the question'. Instead, the term is 'raises the question'. Google 'begs the question' to get an idea of how ignorant you really are.

    Clever ploy by the weather channel to start naming storms. Marketing gimmick imo.

    The regulatory bodies shall set requirements for the power companies to withstand the extreme conditions. It is only question of amount of money to be invested in the infrastructure.
