So, has it been pretty quiet so far?

There is a "Nana" this year??? BAHAAA! I already have a Hurricane Nana in my family. :) You've heard the stories.

I hate hurricanes.

Leslie said...

I think this is the perfect time to reveal to you that Dave's middle name is Sherman.

*hee hee*

How do they choose the names?
Do they recycle them over time?
Do they retire "bad" hurricane names?

Texas Gal - It's been quiet, but that's normal. As you know, things don't really pick up until about September.

Jen - Isn't that hilarious?! I immediately thought of your Nana. I wonder if they'll have one named Maw-Maw next year.

Rebecca - Me, too!

Leslie - Hurricane Sherman. Has a a nice ring to it. :)

Susan - I think the choosing is pretty random, they do recycle the names after several years and they do retire the names of the most infamous storms.
