>>> names of all the hurricanes we have had, can you guess the name they retired today? the national weather service says sandy will never come back -- at least not that name. the october storm caused billions in damage and redrew the map of the eastern seaboard to this day in some places.

>>> in sports they raised jerseys to the rafterers and retire the number. that's for the bst athletes. in the storm business, only the very worst get retired. that's why sandy won't be back.
