Weather: Tropical Aggression


Published:

Much to our relief, the Islands dodged a hurricane in August. But we weren’t as worried about the high winds as we were a potentially battered reputation. How embarrassing would it be to be pummeled by a Flossie? We think the National Weather Service should stick to aggro monikers like these:

Lothar
Molly Hatchet
Spike
Maximus
Dirty Harry
Ku
Stormy
Stormington
Charles Bronson
Vladimir
Thor
Typhoon Mary


Hopefully, we’ll also avoid getting whupped by Raymond, Velma or Wallis, all names on deck for the remainder of the 2007 hurricane season.
