It's 2009 all over again, at least when it comes to the names of Atlantic hurricanes given by the international committee of the World Meteorological Organization. Every six years the same list of names gets rotated giving 2015 the same batch of names as 2009. This holds true except when there's a storm that's so damaging and devastating that it's name gets retired. Then a different name is slipped in its place and the list continues to get recycloned. Pretty boring to me. I'd think they'd at least mix up the names each year. Anyway, they don't, so here's the list of names for 2015.
If it's a real active storm year and this whole list gets run through, the storms start taking on the names of the letters of the Greek alphabet: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Epsilon, Zeta, Eta, Theta, and a bunch more that if we get that far there would be a lot more to worry about than the name of a storm.
