Hurricane Trivia

I know among all the people dying all over the world due to natural disasters, how they name hurricanes is probably the last thing I should be thinking of. However, since I took the trouble to find out, thought I'd share it with you. Hurricane's are named basis the 'name of the day' -according to the christian calendar - the hurricane originated. So if the Christian calendar day is for 'Louise', and a hurricane begins to storm up that day (God forbid) - voila, it will be called 'Hurricane Louise'.

Now how many of you smarty pants bloggers knew that?
