Better late than never, right?!
All the rain and flooding (and power outages) has me thinking about major storms.
When writing about a named storm, such as Hurricane Andrew, always use the pronoun it instead of a gender-specific pronoun.
Even though the storm in my area knocked out my power around 5 a.m., I doubt we'll get a chance to name it. Bummer.
