Summary:
Weather assists in shaping our reality. It is an unalterable condition of the world that we are born into. This short story collection aims to present the nuances of weather. It attempts to acknowledge wind, rain, snow and lightning as forces that shape the world of its characters, forces that even influence the structure of the story itself. In some cases, weather acts as metaphor; in others, the weather seeks to alter language itself. The beauty of a snowflake resides in image and language.
