A hurricane named after you?

8/3/2009:

Monday weather miscellany

hurricane-peter-hobokenYou ever have a major hurricane with the same name as you? Or even a tropical storm? With the real “meat” of the hurricane season starting around this time of the year, I thought I’d take a look at the names for not only 2009 – but all the way up to 2014. Interestingly, 2009 would be the year we’d have a “Hurricane Peter,” as well as several Hoboken Board of Education peeps!

Do you see your name? Anyone you know?

I was happy to see that Hoboken411 Mascot Oscar has a storm named after him in 2012. However, if the Mayan Prophecy is correct, this may be the beginning of the end. If you see a “Category 5 Oscar,” run for the hills! Remember I said that, OK?

Perry, this was hilarious.

Not so sure about the Mayan prophecy stuff, but I do know that our road ahead ain’t gonna be made out of yellow bricks.

Hurricane Dolly in 2014 will be a double whammy with a pair of hurricanes rated Category DD’s slapping us in the face.
