What, the Chesapeke-Potomac Hurricane, New England Hurricane, Great Atlantic Hurricane, Hurricane Hazel, Hurricane Carol, Hurricane Edna, Hurricane Connie, Hurricane Flossy, Hurricane Gracie, Hurricane Donna, Hurricane Esther, Hurricane Daisy, Hurricane Gladys, Hurricane Isabel, Hurricane Gerda, Hurricane Agnes, Hurricane Belle, Hurricane David, Hurricane Bob, Hurricane Gloria, Hurricane Hugo, Hurricane Bob (popular name for hurricanes, I guess), Hurricane Bertha, Hurricane Danny, Hurricane Dennis, Hurricane Floyd, Hurricane Gordon, Hurricane Isidore, Hurricane Isabel, Hurricane Alex, Hurricane Charley, Hurricane Gaston, Hurricane Frances, Hurricane Cindy, the last bits of Hurricane Katrina (hey, it had enough oomph left to knock out power at the Canadian border), Hurricane Ernesto, Hurricane Hanna, Hurricane Bill, and Hurricane Irene  don't count?

I didn't bother with tropical storms and named nor'easters.
