BTT – Weather

While my town dries out of record-setting, epic flooding from Hurricane Irene, let me ask you:

What’s your book with weather events? Hurricanes? Tornadoes? Blizzards? Real? Fiction? Doesn’t matter … weather comes up a lot in books, so there’s got to be a favorite somewhere, huh?

Hum.  Not really sure on this one.  Huge storms, if depicted correctly, I guess would have to be my answer.  I grew up in Florida . . . hurricanes!!!, so I do have a soft spot for severe storms in books, movies, etc.  I’m not really sure I could give a logical reason as those kinds of storms aren’t ‘good’ things but they are powerful and pull at some long forgotten childish core. 

If you’re going for scare me to death it would be blizzards though.  I don’t have a good list of books to show for examples (too tired this A.M.) but there ya have it.  Open-mouthed smile

    As a Finn, I am use to of blizzards, snow and more and more snow. It’s prefect time to read fantasy, like Lord of the Rings trilogy. 🙂
    Never seen a hurricane, but I was once in Indy when a tornado went by that was pretty awesome – for distance, mind you. 😉

    My Thursday!

    1. They can be very, from a distance. I lived in Tornado Alley for a while (a region of the Midwest in the US) and OMG… those are frightening. They sound like diesel trains bearing down on you! As to snow… love it! LOR too 😀

  1. Living in the N.E. in the US, we get a lot of snowy days and storms.

    Florida does get it’s share of hurricanes. New follower!

    Here’s mine

  2. After just going through Irene, don’t know how your nerves can withstand hearing the word hurricane, whereas living in New England, blizzard means books, afghan and hot chocolate.

    1. Eh, when you grow up in it you don’t react to it the same. I never freak out and find it fun to watch non-locals buy up perishables as if the power won’t go out… However, ice storms, blizzards or earthquakes… FOR-GIT-IT. lol And hey, hot cocoa is always good! No matter the kind of weather 😀
