Being located in FL, I'm concerned when there's him-a-cane season.

@Ragman,
Is that why they alternate gender in the names?

@neologist,
I have seasonal allergies, so should I be using anti-herstamins?

@neologist,
Women complained about all those tropical storms named after women, so they started alternating the names in 1979.

@Setanta,
Interesting note here. Apparently, the most violent storms since then have male names. You get what you ask for.
