A Hurricane Flossie Aside

Pardon the Hurricane Flossie aside, and it’s nice to hear that the storm bearing down on Hawaii is weakening, but am I the only one having trouble getting worked up about a hurricane named “Flossie”?

It could just be too many evenings reading Richard Scarry bedtime stories to my kids, but when I hear “Hurricane Flossie” I can’t help but think of Officer Flossie getting wet in the rain. And there are few things more pathetic than a wet fox.

But I digress.

    If you think that Katrina and Andrew are names that were catastrophic and there are many more persons and characters with these names… I do remember also a Paul storm, by the way…
