I just noticed that this week's tropical storms in Australia are not in alphabetical order, so I went to the source to get my head straightened. It seems that each storm developed in a different area and comes under different naming rules. Larry formed in the "Eastern Australian Region"; Wati began its churning over in the "Fiji Region", and Glenda, which is about to pounce, is spinning around in the "Western Australian Region".

I suppose this is only of true interest to geeks, but I had to share.


  1. Is this related to the fact that people on any given day die in alphabetical order?
