  6. I guess it’s inevitable. With increase in moist comes increase of cold, which in turn brings the storm.

    Seasons greetings to you and yours Bartholomew. 🎅

    “To animals they were just the weather, just part of everything.
    But humans arose and gave them names, just as people filled the starry sky with heroes and monsters, because this turned them into stories.
    And humans loved stories, because once you’d turned things into stories, you could change the stories.”
    ― Terry Pratchett, Wintersmith
