Sweet couple, ages 92 and 104, named Irma and Harvey

Harvey and Irma, Married 75 Years, Marvel at the Storms Bearing Their Names

"I remember the first airplane I saw", Irma said.

"I don't know how they've done that, to have a Harvey and Irma", Irma told the New York Times.

Believe it or not, this was purely coincidental.

Harvey and Irma Schluter - aged 104 and 93 - said they "don't know how" both their names ended up being attached to the storms.

Some marriages might be dark and stormy, but for Harvey and Irma Schluter, 75 years of marriage were mostly smooth sailing.

"It's pretty fantastic, huh?" said Dona Schluter, their 47-year-old daughter adopted at age 3, The Spokesman-Review reported.

Married for 75 years, Harvey and Irma amazed by hurricanes bearing their names

Decades before their similarly-named hurricanes made news, Harvey took a trip to Spokane, [Washington],(http://www.brides.com/story/earthy-real-wedding-cacade-mountains) to visit his brother's duplex and just so happened to meet Irma, who was living with her sister in the apartment below. The couple confess they're a little bewildered by all the attention. Numerous children, some of whom keep in touch and call them Mom and Dad, were physically or developmentally disabled.

Both Irma and Harvey say they're not sure what they think and admit it's been hard for them to watch coverage of the storms.

In fact, Irma said they never faced any major natural disaster in their long lives, including earthquakes and snowstorms. And they got married in 1942.

"I have no idea what I'd do". "I said, 'What are you kids talking about?' They're always trying to mess around to get me on something!"

This is likely the last time a Harvey and Irma swirl through the Atlantic. It was first used as a storm name by the weather office in 1981 and has been used six times. No doubt the names of Hurricane Harvey andHurricane Irma will be retired because that's the rule for hurricanes that cause severe damage or kill and injure many people.

Harvey and Irma Schluter's lives starkly contrast with the destruction brought by their atmospheric namesakes.
