1322255_bocking_wind_millThe U.S. is experiencing some severe weather again this week, with thunderstorms, rain, hail, tornadoes, and even snow, depending on where you are. Storms are ripe with dramatic potential, since they can force your characters to cope with extreme, even life-threatening circumstances. As a survivor of Hurricane Katrina, I can state with certainty that severe storms put everything into sharp perspective; mundane annoyances and worries disappear when your home, family, and livelihood are threatened.

Write a poem, scene or story where your characters are faced with some variety of severe weather. How do they react, and how does the experience change them?
