Why do they always use women's names for hurricanes?
you do know that they don't, right? they alternate.
They didn't until 1979. I was in NOLA during the first one named after a guy. Hurricane Bob. Not the time to live in a ground floor apartment.

Fortunately Bob was a bust and the water stopped just level with the doorstep. Car floor got wet though.

Needless to say, it is a very old joke.

ABE actual year of Hurricane Bob.
