The pathetic fallacy.

I remember this from my days of studying 'A' level English Literature. It's when an author uses the weather to underscore the character's mood and circumstance.

(E.G. In Jane Austen's 'Emma', the weather is very nasty at the end of the book, when a woebegone Emma looks like she's lost her best friend, and more importantly, Mr Knightley. But it all comes right and the sun comes out......)

Well, art imitates life, and sometimes life imitates art.

I had a proper storm in a teacup at the Hole Making Shop on Thursday, and stropped off to the pub afterwards with my friend Jane.

Yesterday's rain gives you a good idea of what it felt like.......

There was thunder, lightning, rain, hail, sturm und drang......

And the weather was pretty crap too........

But all is now well.

We bask once more in 'the eternal sunshine of the spotless mind'.

For now.........

  1. Great post John! Those pictures capture the weather (interior and exterior)perfectly. That rain could pelt birds out of the sky! Here's to a better week!
