Tropical Storm Ernesto is ruining Labor Day plans.

I offer the following quote from The Five Orange Pips, a Sherlock Holmes story by Arthur Conan Doyle.
"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."

The forces of nature also broke my umbrella this morning.
