It was a Dark and Stormy Night.

It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents, except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the house-tops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness.
~ Edward Bulwer-Lytton, Paul Clifford

It rains a lot in Ireland, so it rains a lot in Irish Firebrands, too – and yes, there’s even a stormy night chapter….

How often does nature (storms, earthquakes, dawn, dusk, stars, moon, sun, wind, animals, plants, etc.) appear in your fiction?
