French Poodle or Killer Storm?

You know, I just have to say that the name Claudette is more appropriate for a French poodle than a potentially lethal storm.

I agree. And tropical storm Bill was hilarious. It seems like they used to have better names.

Claudette sounds like your old auntie...the one who always has werthers of questionable origin in the bottom of her purse.

Yeah, no kidding, good luck with that storm system. Stay safe.

*lol* I agree completely - when I saw the first mention of it ("Claudette threatens Texas") it took me a long moment to realize the person was talking about a storm:)

I don't know, Claudette seems overused on poodles. Maybe a Bichon Frise, though. :)
I would have felt more threatened by Hurricane Celine.
