Probably for the same reason that most right handers prefer pulling into a parking lot on the left ;)
Tropical cyclones (the generic term for hurricanes and similar storms) rotate counterclockwise when they occur in the northern hemisphere and clockwise when they occur in the southern hemisphere. Since the term hurricane applies to a tropical cyclone in the northern hemisphere, a hurricane will always rotate counter clockwise. However, aside from the direction of rotation there is no real difference between northern and southern hemisphere tropical cyclones.
If we assume that North is at the top, and you are standing mid-way betwen the equator and the North pole and looking at the sun, then the earth rotates towards your left, i.e. Eastwards.Looking down on the Earth from high above the North pole, we will see that it spins on its axis counterclockwise(anticlockwise). After a few days we will also notice that it rotates in its orbit around the sun also in a counterclockwise direction.And the moon? Well, it doesn't rotate on its axis relative to the earth. It always shows the same face to the earth, as it orbits the earth in a ... counterclockwise direction too!
No. While most tornadoes rotate in a direction that matches earth's (clockwise in the northern hemisphere and counterclockwise in the southern), a small percentage go against this. The origin of the spin in tornadoes is not directly related to earth's rotation. Most tornadoes also move in an easterly direction, but not always.
Friction always acts in the direction opposite to the direction of movement.

Simple answer: Venus has "retrograde" rotation.A more complicated answer. Venus rotates in the opposite direction compared with Earth and most other planets in our solar system. The Earth's rotation is "prograde". It rotates in the counterclockwise direction, when viewed from above the North Pole.However it is possible to define the "North Pole" of Venus in two different ways.It can be said that, on one definition, Venus also rotates in the direction that'scounterclockwise as viewed from above its North Pole.Still, nearly always, you will find the rotation referred to as "retrograde", so the simple answer is OK.Anyway, Venus definitely rotates in a direction that's opposite to its direction of orbital revolution.
