Storm Dennis is on the way, with high winds, low temperatures and Amazon Basin-levels of rainfall promised/threatened for the weekend. All I can think is: why do they give storms such uncool names?

Dennis is a name for the man who bleeds the radiators in your office. Dennis is the driver of the minibus that brought you on a day trip to Ballybunion last summer.

Dennis is that guy you play five-a-side soccer with, the big lanky fella who hasn't much of a first touch but is a good man to get on the end of a cross.
