FDP Forum / Moe's Tavern (_8^(I) / "..the equinoctal gales.."

This is the introductory passage from "The Five Orange Pips", a Sherlock Holmes story by Conan Doyle. Always pops into my mind this time of year, especially now as the remains of Jose has been churning offshore for the past several days, throwing bands of rain and steady 25-35 mph winds with gusts upwards of 45. Lots of branches down, scattered power outages.

"It was in the latter days of September, and the equinoctial gales had set in with exceptional violence. All day the wind had screamed and the rain had beaten against the windows, so that even here in the heart of great, hand-made London we were forced to raise our minds for the instant from the routine of life and to recognise the presence of those great elemental forces which shriek at mankind through the bars of his civilisation, like untamed beasts in a cage"

Happy Equinox!
