Clearly I'm in the wrong state.

Ivan, my hometown (in the hard-working part of Louisiana) is named for you. You should drop by!

Thanks for the invite, Graham! If I ever get back that way I'll take you up on the offer.

I have actually visited my namesake in the past -- my grandparents (not Shreves, Sullivans...on my mom's side) lived there for a spell when I was but a wee lad. The memories are quite fuzzy but I do recall a friend of my grandfather's taking me out for a ride on his motorboat.

Interesting that the majority of the top 10 are in the south. I wonder if that has to do with less inclement weather, and retirees?

My state (California) not on the list, I see.
