Ode to a Squall

"But, wait. There's more. What is that smudge on the horizon, a smudge that is growing ever larger beneath a big anvil-shaped cloud? Oh yeah. Another side to nature is the first sign of a squall. That figures. How many times do sudden squalls come a knocking out of the clear blue, when things couldn't look better? Fortunately, one redeeming feature of the squall is that they don't spawn suddenly, appearing out of nowhere. If a proper lookout is maintained and the watch isn't asleep at the wheel, squalls always give fair warning. "
