Two Pretzels: I hope this veers a little west...

September 10, 2014

I hope this veers a little west...

We had a little hurricane last week (Norbert) and now we have Tropical Storm Odile coming directly at us.


 Ah, hurricane season...



I certainly hope she moves in the other direction.

Now on to the name, "Odile."



Here's what it means:
Odile is a French name meaning "wealthy, fortunate."
Odile is a variant of the Old German name Odila, and its meaning is "fortunate or prosperous in battle".

Tropical storms and hurricanes don't often evoke "fortunate" feelings for me.

And it's very clearly, not popular:


The more you know... (chime, chime, chime... who remembers that?)
