A Match Made in Heaven...or in the Atlantic Ocean?

A few weeks ago, I was a part of the wedding of my dear friend Maria. Not long after that, her dad let us all know about a crazy coincidence, if you want to call it that: the list of tropical storm names for 2005. Weather experts name these storms YEARS in advance (every other storm alternates between male and female names, beginning with an "A" female name one year and an "A" male name the next year, for those who don't know). And actually, I just learned that the same list cycles every six years (with the exception of especially damaging hurricanes whose names are retired).

Ironically, this year, the year that Maria married Nate, we've had a pretty active hurricane season, so we're through a good deal of the alphabet. And guess what's been brewing out in the Atlantic?

Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Nate. It just makes me smile :)

Now... at the expense of sounding like one of those guys who's always trying to 'one up' everyone else... I would just like to say that I pointed out the hurricane naming phenomenon first. Just ask Nate.

By the way, I think word verification is much more of a demotivator to commenting than typing my name and email address (which, if you had cookies turned on, would be saved so you wouldn't have to type it in each time). But having you comment makes me feel special. And there's no word verification on my comments :)

I apologize to anyone who's annoyed by the word verification. But it prevents all the stupid spam comments that I would get otherwise. I hate those!

How hard is it to type a handful of letters anyway? At least Blogger's image is easy to read, unlike Hotmail's word verification sometimes.
