Greek Storms

So, we've officially entered the realm of the Greek alphabet-named storms. I have to say, I find this very exciting. Now that we're on Alpha, I know what comes next. All through the season, I've had to go to the website to find out the next name to be used for the next storm. Thanks to my physics education, where it is preferable to do math with Greek letters than with numbers, I know what the names of the next 23 storms will be. From memory! I'm just so glad to see that the money I spent on my education is finally starting to reap some benefits for me.

Ah, the glories of a good education. I'm glad you wrote about this, because I was wondering myself how they plan to name storms that come when they've run out of alphabet. And now I don't have to look it up!
