“These names have become popular and widely known. According to this almanac, as the full Moon in February, the tribes of what is now the northeastern United States called this the Snow Moon or the Storm Moon because of the heavy snows that fall in this season.
“The last time I checked (which was several years ago), NOAA long-term monthly averages for the Washington, DC area showed January and February were nearly tied as the snowiest months of the year.
“Bad weather and heavy snowstorms made hunting difficult, so this Moon was also called the Hunger Moon.
“Across North America, there are many different Native American names for the Full Moons.”
