* TheBible is a reliable source of such associations of strange and adverse weather with significant events: we have the whole world going black and cold and stormy during the death on the cross of Jesus, for instance. And Literature/BookOfRevelation is full of grim forebodings that the End of the World will be accompanied by some fairly dramatic weather phenomena - storms, lightnings, rains of blood. et c.

** An odd little anecdote concerns Tolkein's one and only attempt at a science fiction story, perserved as a snippet in one of the ''Unfinished Tales'' anthologies. Written in the 1940's at the prompting of his friend Creator/CSLewis, in an attempt to {{Homage}} Lewis' style and themes, the action takes place in the South of England in October 1987. (seen as sufficently far into the future) during the worst storm ever to hit England. And in October 1987 (fifteern years after Tolkein's death) - guess what happened in the South of England...
