This week’s prompt over at http://www.carrotranch.com was to use storm windows in 99 words (no more, no less), and go where the prompt led. Here’s mine:
Tipping the Beaufort Scale
Serafina loved wind, from warm southern breezes to biting northern squalls; she loved rain especially thunderstorms; she loved snow, blizzards as well as all the feathery, drifting flakes; but hurricanes, tornadoes, typhoons, and cyclones may have been her favorite meteorological events.
Serafina controlled them all from her tower room, which had four windows, one to the east, one to the west, one to the north, and one to the south. With the touch of her hand on the panes of the storm windows, she sent out tempests to wreck havoc on the land and the humans, who wanted sunshine.

By way of explanation, the Beaufort Scale categorizes the strength of winds. The higher the number, the stronger and fiercer the wind. The scale goes from 0 (Calm) to 12 (Hurricane).
