Sandy Doesn't Even Cover It
Anyway, this naming process is cute and all but let's be honest - is a name like "Sandy" really covering all the craziness that is going on right now? I mean, to me, "Sandy" sounds more like the east coast is experiencing a wet kiss and loveable cuddle by some blonde Labrador, than 60mph winds and devastating rainfalls. Therefore, I think from now on all major storms should be named after former WWE wrestlers. Seriously, think about it - wouldn't you me more inclined to board up your house and run out for batteries if you heard the "Abdullah the Butcher" was about to hit your hometown? Or what if it was being reported that "Gorilla Monsoon" was moving from a tropical storm to a massive hurricane? Gorilla Monsoon? Heck, I would move if I heard that bad boy coming. And lastly, if "Sgt. Slaughter" came to my hometown it wouldn't just be forgotten once the debris was cleaned, but the day the storm hit would be remembered for years to come. Children would become freakishly quiet if the word "slaughter" was ever used. Adults would shudder as they recalled the time they first heard the meteorologist say, "'Sgt. Slaughter' is coming our way."
Think about it - these storms are reeking havoc. The least we can do is they give them the respect they deserve.
