Have we really exhausted all the cool Tropical Storm names and now we’re left with feeders like Beryl?
Did we consider:
- Britannicus, Broughton, or Bartholomew?
No wonder Beryl gave up before it reached the Massachusetts shoreline.
Leaving me to contemplate that very famous limerick:
There once was a storm from Nantucket
Martha’s Vineyard didn’t think they could duck it –
It would rip through Cape Cod, death & destruction its wad,
But with a limp name like Beryl the storm said ‘Fuck It’.
