BLURB

Latest weather report for the region: It’s going to be sunny. Briefly. Warm, light flickering breezes will lap over your overweight body like bath water until you almost get bored in the gentle glow of real comfort. But. Somewhere, likely around midday, you’ll notice a wind shift. What will start as a welcomed change will evolve. It will become rather unwelcomed. What once were unpleasant gusts will be the normal, the new base from which newer and more violent gusts will launch. These gusts will ruin you. They’ll take you for everything you have and you’ll barely survive the barrage of things they carry in their angry swirls. The question is, will you be around still? Will you bunker down and sing hymns to hope that nature lets you be? [Ryan Nimmo]
