"Stormy" is a cool and masculine nickname, although it was probably not meant as a compliment. George "Stormy" Kromer, born in 1876 in Kaukauna - Wisconsin, had this particular nickname which referred to his temper. He was a semi-pro baseball player and railroad engineer. He started as an engineer because his father in law did not allow him to marry his daughter before he had a real job.
