She Really Took the Wind Out of Their Sails

There once was a potentially wild woman called Andrea. She was really special because she was ahead of her time. Everybody awaited her arrival with baited breath. Then she decided she wasn't ready for her close up and turned and fled. All the world's a stage and there is always a fresh excuse for some drama.

The meteorologists and media were becoming quite giddy that there was a sub-tropical storm brewing and it was going to hit land! They dug out their dire predictions about how this is going to be the worst-possible-hurricane-season-EVER!! Everybody panic!!!! And then, the storm was downgraded and not expected to hit land. You could hear the utter dejection in the meteorologist's voice as he forlornly proclaimed, "Well, (sigh) Andrea isn't doing to well..." (His exact words.) He really did sound like someone had just shot his puppy.

Because a storm of any kind raining down its fury on anyone is a good thing? The total destruction and devastation it can bring is a good thing?

And thank you for personifying a storm.
