Re: naming the storm -- I thought of Loki but got caught up in the whole must-start-with-a-G thing. I really like Loki, though.

I think that this bad boy should have a name; we're on G, and a male name. In comparison, Hurricane Chris had sustained winds of 75 mph (120 km/h) (1-min), and a low pressure of 987 mbar (hPa). I suggest Gaagii (pronounced GAHgee). It is Navajo for "Raven". Raven is a Trickster God; the Yupik have a legend that Raven created the world. Saghani is a Yupik word for Raven; the Athabascan word is Yixgitsiy (literally, "everyone's Grandfather.) Another suggestion is the Athabascan word for Eat -- Guhonh (guh HONE.) That would also be appropriate for this storm, hm?
